1. Don't forget to include them.
Perhaps the number one reason for a print-related security failure is overlooking the importance of including networked copiers and printers in compliance strategies. Any networked equipment that is used to manage patient information is a potential weak link, so be sure not to ignore them when planning out your compliance strategy.
2. Make access easy for users, but not hackers.
Enable user authentications on all technologies included in your network. Hackers recognize that high-value information can be accessed through unprotected equipment, and that includes your copiers and printers.
