Click through for five commonly overlooked digital devices that could leave organizations open to a data breach, as identified by Cintas Corporation and the Ponemon Institute.

According to a recent study by the Ponemon Institute – the pre-eminent research center dedicated to privacy, data protection and information security policy – data breaches cost U.S. enterprises an average of $5.4 million per incident in 2012. Cintas Corporation partnered with the Ponemon Institute to identify five digital devices that are overlooked areas in a business and could be subject to a security breach.

"With the growing number of digital devices in today's businesses, it is no longer sufficient to only secure data stored on documents or in computer files," said Dr. Larry Ponemon, chairman and founder of the Ponemon Institute. "Data stored on digital devices such as fax machines and routers must be securely destroyed to prevent it from getting into the wrong hands."

This slideshow features the most commonly overlooked digital devices that could be a point of access for a security breach.
