    Printers and copiers are security risk – EU warns users
    The EU is worried that printers and copiers are the weakest link in IT networks.
    The
    European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA) has issued a
    statement warning companies to look closely at printers and copiers
    when designing their corporate cyber defences.Many companies are
    unaware of the dangers posed by printers that are connected to the
    Internet, ENISA has warned.  Printers are effective ways to penetrate
    networks or a window to stored documents.Companies have to be careful
    to take precautions with printers and copiers to prevent unauthorised
    access to documents or data cartridges. The good old days of printing
    and copying, dating back 450 years to Gutenberg, whereby documents
    could be secured with a lock and key were over, the agency said.ENISA
    surveyed 350 companies in France, Germany and Britain before reaching
    its startling conclusion.
