Canon Multifunction Device Security

  • All Canon hard drives are encrypted. However, not all Canon Copy/Printers have hard drives in them.
  • All network printers that contain hard drives also have firewalls around them.
  • The default settings for these machines include an image over write which occurs after every session (print ,copy, scan, fax).
  • All hard drives are wiped when they are removed.
  • Canon wipes each drive when it “leaves the University”. A certificate of successful overwrite is provided at the end of life.
  • Although somewhat complex, default security settings can be modified. Changes to default security settings require the notification of IT and the Information Security Office as well as completion of a security exception request.
  • Validation of security settings can be accomplished by contacting Will Barnett and providing the copier/printer location.
