• Security top of agenda at Brother UK reseller seminar

        • At Brother UK’s recent reseller event, at its Greater Manchester solutions showroom, document security was top of the agenda as 34 representatives from Brother UK’s reseller partners learnt the risks of printer related data breaches.

          According to research completed by Quocirca, 61 per cent of businesses suffered a data breach in 2017. A presentation by Suzanne Bullivant, Legal Officer at Brother International Europe, highlighted what ever-changing regulation means for how businesses manage personal data, by having to know where it is kept, what is done with it, and how long they will retain it.

          Suzanne said, “moving forward it is all about businesses understanding the data that they have in their possession, while ensuring they have the best possible defence in place against security breaches.

          “Printers can often be a soft target for data theft, as they aren’t always integrated correctly into the IT infrastructure, leaving them outside of the wider network security.”

          According to Brother UK, Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption is one of the best ways to protect documents sent across a network to be printed. The few seconds it takes for a document to be sent across to a printer is long enough for an experienced hacker to capture the information.

          Suzanne added, “one of the best approaches resellers can make to assist their clients with this issue, is by offering a managed print service, so installation and connection to an existing network, including its security features, is properly achieved.

          “We are keen to offer training and assistance to our channel partners, so ultimately the end-customer receives the highest quality service. Events such as this add another level to our partnership with the channel, meaning that together we can continue to offer businesses IT solutions that enhance performance and productivity.”
