How your office copying machine can expose you to identity theft or worse

OMG!!  That is the most common response we have had from clients and business associates when we tell them about this potential problem.  Your office copying machine most likley has a built in hard drive that records every copy and fax you generate on the machine.  That hard drive is just like the one in your desktop computer and stores all this information.

When you sell or trade in the machine that hard drive stays in the machine and all that sensitive information goes with it.   Just take a moment and think about what information you have copied… payroll records, medical records, tax returns…  I think you see the problem.  To see a story done by CBS on this follow the link below.
