As cyberattacks continue to increase, capitalising on the new vulnerabilities of remote working, securing the print infrastructure – across the office and home environments – must be a strategic priority. Quocirca’s Print Security Landscape 2020 study reveals increasing concerns around the risks of printing, and declining confidence in the ability to protect the print infrastructure against security breaches. The attack surface has now expanded to encompass remote endpoints such as home printers, which may fall through the gap of traditional print security measures.

This heightened exposure to possible data loss is leading organisations to lose confidence in the security of their print infrastructure. Just 21% of IT Decision Makers (ITDMs) say they are completely confident, compared to 33% prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. In the past six months, 64% have reported a data loss as a result of unsecure printing practices, with reasons ranging from improper disposal of confidential information by employees to device malware. This is leading to an average cost of a data loss reaching £1.2 million in the US and £825,000 in Europe.
