ICIA Cybercrime Investigation Alert!
International Cybercrime Investigation Agency cares about your online safety.
Wi-Fi Printers are in most businesses and homes.
Who set up your printer and how?
Some businesses could be unknowingly sharing and leaking confidential documents through open wifi.
When using a WiFi printer, please take care and consider your confidential documents can/will be shared to the printer manufacturer’s server.
Consent To Share
On printer set-up, most people will give consent to share information to the printer manufacturers server, for instance, while setting up the new printer. Check the small print and re-install the printer and check the settings and uncheck the boxes. This could be exploited by hackers and used as a ‘back door’.
Stay Safe Online
Better still, all wi-fi is susceptible to hacking, so use a cable that will add some extra security.
Direct Cable Connection
If your printer is connected directly by cable to something other than a computer, get cyber security trained staff to identify any unknown devices attached to your network.
Sharing Your Confidential Data
Legal firms and medical practices take care with those confidential files!
International Cybercrime Investigation Agency are available for consultation.
