Securing your workplace has never been more important.
Canon Solutions America, a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., a Multi-Award Winner in the 2018 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program, is launching a 16-city security roadshow, beginning June 4, entitled Mission Possible: Securing Your Enterprise.
Establishing and maintaining a security posture that adequately balances risk and business productivity is top of mind of many business leaders, and Canon’s mission is to offer their customers solutions and services that can enable business growth, provide improvements in productivity and efficiency and protect information as it flows both inside and outside of an organization.
This initiative is designed to educate businesses on information security and data privacy, and provide solutions and services to support these critical areas.

64% of businesses have had a security breach or attempted breach, and the average cost of a data breach in the U.S. in 2018 was $7.91 million, according to IT market intelligence provider International Data Corporation (IDC).
Never has it been more important for organizations to focus on protecting sensitive information.
As a leader in enterprise, production, and large format printing solutions, Canon Solutions America places top priority on data privacy and device, document, and cybersecurity, and is committed to helping customers mitigate risks.
Along with colleagues from Vera, Barracuda Networks, NT-ware, and Therefore, Canon Solutions America will share insights into the convergence of information security and data privacy at events in cities across the country.

Attendees will learn how Canon Solutions America’s “Five Pillars of Security” approach can help their organizations address multiple areas of risk which includes:
Printers, multifunctional devices and any other office equipment connected to the outside are vulnerable for exploitation in the pursuit of breaching a company’s perimeter.
You know how important it is to protect sensitive business data, but much of that content is still paper-based.
Closing security gaps in your printing and imaging environment is an important piece of your overall security strategy.
Documents carry critical business information.
Protecting this data both in transit and at rest is imperative for modern enterprises as attackers find increasingly innovative ways to compromise systems and steal data.
Information is one of the most valuable assets to all organizations.
One thing is clear in information security: defending against digital threats today is more challenging than ever.
Connected devices are being used by employees to drive bottom-line activity; however, this connectivity may also introduce unquantifiable risks from cyberattacks.

“With information security and data privacy, you can’t talk about one without the other,” explained Mark Sinanian, Senior Director, Solutions Marketing, Canon Solutions America.
“Businesses rely on the sharing of information, both electronically and through paper-based communication, for the successful operation of the company.”
“Implementing and maintaining security measures that balance risk and business productivity is essential.”
“Canon Solutions America’s mission is to provide our customers with solutions and services that protect the transfer of information while helping to enable business growth and improve efficiency.”
According to the 2019 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, out of 41,686 security incidents analyzed, there were 2,013 confirmed data breaches and out of those, 43% involved small business victims.
Global research and advisory firm Gartner recommends that to eliminate security risks, infrastructure and operations leaders should implement tools to monitor and alert users and devices and tighten control of printed paper documents by requiring authentication prior to printing.
These are just some of the data security measures Canon Solutions America devices and solutions provide.
Canon Solutions America’s security roadshow will demonstrate a layered approach to securing the workplace.
The company’s five-pillar security portfolio will be on display to help organizations of all sizes educate workers about today’s persistent social engineering threats, and how to protect personally identifiable information, mitigate the risk of paper-based information, and leverage dynamic data encryption at the file level when information has to travel beyond the local perimeter.
The security roadshow is part of a larger initiative to help educate and support customers in the areas of information security and data privacy.
Earlier this year, Canon Solutions America expanded its five-pillar portfolio by linking up with Barracuda Networks to help combat email-delivered threats through its PhishLine social engineering awareness platform, and with EventSentry, a hybrid Security Information Event Management (SIEM) solution that gives security and IT professionals increased visibility into their systems.
Both solutions help organizations operate more securely.
During the security roadshow, subject matter experts will provide real world demonstrations of the “Five Pillars of Security.”

Barracuda Networks will also discuss its new Concierge Service offering that enables organizations with a smaller support staff to take advantage of an advanced learning platform to create security awareness and help change behavior for people who may be targets for phishing scams.
The Concierge Service provides a dedicated subject matter expert to design, execute, and measure security awareness campaigns for them.
