How Security Ready Are You?

Posted by Aley Dibblee on Thursday, 04 May 2017 in Vision News

Are you security ready?

We’re hearing more and more about IT and data security than ever with breaches globally costing organisations millions and the risks and impacts are increasing with the new legislation in May 2018 and the GDPR - General Data Protection Regulation.   

Vision’s business partner, HP have produced an entertaining short video in efforts to raise awareness of security risks facing businesses and highlights how corporate networks can be hacked through their printers and how it can be prevented. Its opening statement “There are hundreds of millions of business printers in the world, less than 2% of them are secure” reinforces the importance of the potential threat to businesses.

In a recent Spiceworks study only 18% of IT professionals surveyed considered printers to be medium or high risk for security threats or breaches. Christian Slater shows printers are not immune from a cyber-attack, signifying the need to create awareness of securing printers. 

Christian Slater also demonstrates how simple it is for a hacker to access your business’ data. First through your printers, then network and then the data. It relaying a clear message “the importance of a secure network and that includes the networked printing devices.”

"Hacking is a serious and growing problem for businesses and consumers. When HP asked me to partner on this series, I thought it was a great opportunity to help educate the public about how to better protect against cyber-attacks," Christian Slater commented.

How security ready are you?
