How important is information security in your workplace? That’s a rhetorical question, because the answer’s always “incredibly, amazingly important” or some variation of the same.
And which of your IT system’s security do you pay least attention to? I’ll answer this one for you—your print network. It always is. Which is worrying, because there are a number of ways your print environment’s security can be compromised.
If you want to stay ahead of the game and be your workplace’s “security guru”, I heartily recommend taking a look at the newly published report from Quocirca “The print security landscape, 2020”.
The report looks at the world’s print security landscape (ok, that seems obvious), based on interviews with over 500 IT professionals from around the planet.
Importantly, it provides you with focus areas to consider when planning your print and IT security in 2020 and beyond. Of particular interest are Quocirca’s buyer recommendations. These guidelines will help you in your evaluation efforts for your next print tender.
Key insights from the report include:
- IT security remains the top investment priority over the next 12 months
- Confidence in how well the print infrastructure is protected against security breaches has decreased since the onset of COVID-19
- In the past six months two thirds of organisations have experienced data losses due to unsecure printing practices
