Security Risk of Office Photocopiers

CBS news recently compiled a report, that reveals a startling finding about  security risks contained in digital office photo-copiers.

As we can see in the video, office copying machines contain hard disks that store an image of every page ever copied by the copier. This means that all copies ever made on one of these machines remains intact

One wonders if identity thieves are busily buying up old laser printers from auctions in order to tap into the treasure trove of personal information about employees, clients, company trade secrets, bank account details or anything and everything that was ever copied ?

This means at the very least, if your business is planning on reselling your machine you may want to talk to your vendor about replacing the hard drive !
