General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – Part 3

Part 3 – GDPR Compliance & Print Protection.

GDPR regulations come into force on 25th May this year and at Agile we can help guide you on how to keep your printing environment and hardware secure.

 As unprinted electronic documents, your standard IT security systems and procedures will be your first line of defence. Therefore, you should review these in detail and address any concerns relating to “personal identification information” being vulnerable to attack or loss. However, once a user sends anything to print at Agile, we have the expertise to help you maintain maximum security.

Firstly, you will need to consider if and how that flowing data is encrypted. You will also need to consider the security measures in place to restrict access to print queues, and their abilities to reconfigure these. Once this area is addressed then the highest security concern comes from the documents release at the device. In many businesses this key element remains overlooked. At Agile we sell hardware and provide software tools to lock down this area of potential breach.

Our hardware and software solutions provide:-

  • User authentication at a device to ensure it reaches only the right recipient
  • Security systems to track both the sender and receivers’ identity
  • Continuous monitoring and storage of users’ names, email & printing history
  • Hard Disk lock and industry data protection options on many models
  • USB Printing can be disabled to avoid users bypassing the other protection measures
  • Print traffic protection using optional AES 128-Bit encryption to protect data in transit
