The Epoch Times is running this interesting piece on photocopiers and printers that have been discarded or junked actually representing a threat - a threat of trade secret and competitively sensitive information actually contained on those machines.
“Thousands of these machines leave businesses every month with the internal data intact,” according to Digital CopierSecurity Inc. (DCSI). “Some are resold domestically and many are placed into cargo containers and shipped overseas. There is no control over the resale of these machines. They are sold on the open market to anyone with the cash to buy them.”
