That old school copier is going to look good after you check this out. This is a news story from CBS a few years ago, but the information is still VERY valid. The copy machines we all have in our offices are also computers with hard drives that records and keep information. They record and keep images of what you copy!

It is not often that when a copy machine is replaced that it's hard drive is removed or cleaned of information. What is the big deal? Think about ALL the stuff that gets copied. Checks, contracts, employee and payroll information, just to name a few common workplace items that get copied. The list of things I have copied on photocopiers over the years is mind-boggling! Imagine that information getting into the hands of someone who knows how to then use it to steal information and use it for gain. You will never ever look at that copier the same way again, will you?
