Computer printers may be an agency's weakest link in terms of cybersecuity

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, state and local governments rapidly shifted employees to remote work. Many agencies may retain remote work permanently in some form as recent research conducted by the Center for Digital Government revealed that almost 75 percent of state and local government respondents expect a hybrid of remote and in-office work to be the norm for their employees going forward.

The Center asks "Are your printers the weakest security link in this new highly distributed workplace environment?"

The Center and HP will host an interactive discussion that will explain what the permanent shift to hybrid work means for endpoint security on March 31 at 11 a.m. Pacific/2 p.m. Eastern. This 45-minute webcast will will focus on why securing your organization’s printers is just as important as protecting PCs, laptops and mobile devices connected to your network. Topics to be discussed include:

Assessing current endpoint security risks and develop a holistic plan to mitigate them;

How managed print services can close dangerous security vulnerabilities in your printer fleet; and

What to look for in hardware, software and firmware to strengthen print security and performance.

Featured Speakers:

    Michael Howard, Head of Security and Analytics Practice, HP
    Paul Knoblich, General Manager US Public Sector Print, HP
    Deborah Snyder - Moderator, Senior Fellow, Center for Digital Government

Registration is complimentary, and all attendees will have the opportunity to download a certificate of attendance at the completion of the webinar on March 31, 2021.
