Once upon a time in a northern Midwest institution, a printer activated, a piece of paper printed out, and the "printer troll" was born. Thus begins the story of "securing the printer." Departmental printers, both multifunction and single use, are prevalent on campuses. Many of these printers are set up by the vendor and receive no management or support from IT or the vendor. A recent vulnerability scan demonstrated just how unsecure these printers were. NDSU embarked on a printer remediation project that affected departments and hundreds of printers. Follow NDSU's story of printer remediation, training, and education.
