Security Breaches Linked To Printing Are Getting Worse Security Breaches Linked To Printing Are Getting Worse

The Print Security Landscape 2023 study was just released by Quocirca, a well-known company that does market research and analysis on a global scale. The study showed that people are getting more worried about the possible security risks of printing and that their confidence in protecting print infrastructure from data breaches and security attacks seems to be going down.

Among the study's most important findings were:

  • Only 19% of big businesses (those with more than 1,000 workers) are completely sure that their print infrastructure is safe from data loss and security breaches.
  • 61% of businesses said they had a data breach linked to printing in the past year.
  • Even with these problems, 70% of companies said that printing is still very important or very important to their business over the next year.
  • 27% of IT security problems could be traced back to paper records.
  • A large number of businesses, 79%, say they will spend more on print security in the coming year.
