This month the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) came into force across the European Union. As a result of this, it is now more important than ever to have adequate data protection systems in force in the workplace. As well as protecting data stored on PCs and paper documents, it is also vital that multifunctional machines such as photocopiers are considered to ensure data security in this area is not breached either.

As the photocopier is often one of the most used pieces of equipment in the office, there are many potential infringements on security which need to be considered, including who has access to the machine as well as what happens to the hard drive after the leasing period. One way of addressing these concerns is by using an ineo SECURE service with the device. This is a security system provided by Develop, which can be customised to meet the individual needs of your company.

With this in place, potential security violations such as the theft of data can be detected, giving piece of mind that valuable data is properly protected and not at risk. This an important consideration for any business as leaked, misused or missing data can have a very negative effective on brand appeal and reputation. On the other hand, a company that is proactively taking measures to protect the corporate data it holds may be viewed more favourably by clients.

Compare Copiers help businesses compare the prices of different photocopier leases, ensuring they make informed decisions about their copier provider and get the possible deal. For more information or to get three different quotes instantly please complete our short contact us form.
