Print security

If you feel uncomfortable performing the steps below to secure your printer(s) please contact  the IT Support Centre by calling 613.533.6666 during regular business hours or by filling out the Online Help Form.  For leased printers, please contact the vendor if assistance is required.

Most printers now provide easy, out of the box setup. Unfortunately most of these printers have little to no default security.  This allows others to access the printer.  They can be misused, allow the intruder to access copies of documents that have been sent to the printer and allow the printer to be used in an attack on other systems.

Note:  All printers are required to have a secure admin password.  (All Multi-Function Devices are to have a unique password that is set by the department, with assistance of the company from whom the device has been leased.
