GDPR and Printing – Your guide to compliance

GDPR covers Personal Data contained both in digital as well as in paper files that are processed. Printing, scanning and copying are essential actions in the manual processes, where paper files are either created or copied and hence requires full access security and traceability. While printing is not top-of-mind for most businesses grappling with compliance, it is clearly one of the considerations to obtain GDPR compliance.

Data protection by design and by default are key principles of the new GDPR regulations and organisation’s need to be able to demonstrate they have adequate security measures in place to protect data. Those who do not include printing within their GDPR risk assessment could cause the misuse or disclosure of data and provide the opportunity for unauthorised access on to their network through unsecured print devices.
