Set Print Control Based on Context

This policy restricts users from printing documents with PII (personally identifiable information), PHI (personal health information) or other sensitive information. Users can request to print sensitive information using an approval workflow. Print security policy is effective at all times, even if users use uncontrolled printing devices or if they are offline.

Even in today's digital world, more than three-quarters (76 percent) of organizations indicate that printing is critical or important to their business activities. A whopping 70 percent of businesses admit to experiencing one or more print-related data breaches and violations to data protection legislation, which could lead to fines of up to $850,000. So why have less than 25 percent of businesses implemented secure printing initiatives?

In some cases, companies may not be aware of print-related security risks and have found security assessments for printers to be a challenge. Others may lack the budget or knowledge to implement a policy.

In this slideshow, Fasoo, a data and software security company, offers five essential components for an enterprise's print security strategy. Having a print security plan in place will minimize the risks of paper-based data breaches with the ability to detect sensitive information and restrict printing, securing printouts by mandating verification. Besides security risks, policies will provide management with a way to control printing devices overall with the result of reducing printing, paper and toner costs due to the print quota system features.
