A significant new data security regulation, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), comes into force on 25th May 2018.
This means every organisation that processes the personal data of all UK and EU residents must have stringent measures in place to comply with the GDPR. Not only that, organisations must show they have taken the right actions to protect personal data.
While there is still reliance on printing and scanning to support key business, organisations need to protect personal data against unauthorised processing and accidental leak and theft.
Networked printers and multifuntion printers (MFPs) are often overlooked when it comes to wider information security measures. Yet these devices store and process data, and as intelligent devices have the same security vulnerabilities as any other networked endpoint.
The biggest incentive to rethink print security is the substantial potential fines imposed by the GDPR. Infringement can attract a fine of up to 4% of total global annual turnover or €20m (whichever is the higher). Organisations cannot afford to be complacent.
That’s where ZenOffice MPS come in. We can help you take the right steps to ensure your organisation is secure, safe and compliant.
ZenOffice MPS provide Xerox ConnectKey technology on their multifunction printers (MFPs). This technology has been built with the GDPR in mind and provides the highest security settings to keep your printers and data safe.
While May 2018 could seem some time away, now is the time for all organisations to start assessing how ready and able they are to comply with the GDPR.
Why not talk to ZenOffice MPS today to discuss how we can help ensure that your print strategy and print fleet is compliant with GDPR.
