Your data on copy machines

Could you buy thousands of confidential documents for a few hundred dollars? I’m talking about things like bank records, pay stubs, medical records and contracts. It’s possible. And it’s easier than you think. Just buy a used office copier. Most modern copiers retain an image of every document copied. Their hard drives are rarely wiped before disposal. These are the same copiers used by doctors, lawyers and police. This is a serious security risk.
