Getting rid of an Old Printer? Read this first....

Does part of your 2011 IT budget include selling an old printer on eBay? Be careful you don't pass on customer information, employee social security numbers, or your business'  bank account information to a printer buyer in Singapore.

Most printers have hard drives that store digital images of the items you print. These harddrives are rarely considered and cleaned when a printer moves on to another user.

report by CBS News outlines just what type of information can be left on a printer's harddrive and the "ticking time bomb of information" that gets shared when a printer moves on.  

Don't allow your printer to move on with confidential information to share.
