Unencrypted Data Puts Over 1 Million People At Risk

Data of over 1 million people has been leaked to a public accessible database. This includes fingerprints, facial recognition, unencrypted usernames and passwords, and other personal information of employees. Suprema is the security company responsible for this, and they are used to secure facilities in over 83 countries, including governments, banks and the police.

This case highlights the importance of encryption, including making data anonymous, whilst in motion and at rest.

According to several industry experts, over half of print related data breaches has resulted in a data loss in the past 12 months. Therefore the application of data encryption as part of their print and imaging security strategy should be put in place.
