For many employees, the days of home working with its freedom from the stress of rush hour commuting and ‘breakfast on the run’, may be numbered. With the rollout of the COVID vaccine well established in the US and now underway across many parts of the globe, there is an increasing level of optimism about the future and the gradual return to a form of near normality. While some companies, including Microsoft, Salesforce, PricewaterhouseCoopers, are extending home working and looking to reduce their office footprint, many more organizations are ramping up their return-to-work plans.
In a recent LaSalle Network survey of more than 350 CEOs, HR and Finance leaders, 70% said they are planning to have their employees back in the office by the fall of this year.
As organizations plan for their employees to return to the office, it will be important to review the office print environment and address any security or compliance shortfalls that could facilitate a data breach and a potential non-compliance penalty.
The Quocirca Global Print Security Landscape report highlights that just 19% of organizations are classified as “print security leaders” and can help to raise IT leader’s awareness of the potential security risks of an unsecured print infrastructure and the measures that can be implemented to reduce their exposure.
