HP Continues to Demonstrate its Commitment to Printer Security

In August 2018, Onliner Jeff Man attended the Black Hat Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada. While at Black Hat Jeff had the opportunity to connect with the team from HP and discuss the importance, and changing landscape of printer security.
 

In early 2017, HP invited a group of cybersecurity industry bloggers and podcasters to gather for an HP Print Security “Tech Day” at their headquarters in Palo Alto, CA. The purpose of the gathering was to introduce the group to HP’s printer security program (#reinventsecurity), foster discussion, and get feedback on the program. This event was the precursor to a major marketing campaign for HP to promote everything they’ve been doing in terms of making their printers more secure and also building printers with “cyber resilience”, meaning they have the capacity to detect malicious or accidental actions and even recover from the attacks. HP has worked diligently to improve the security of printers which in turn helps to create a more secure enterprise network.
