The tremendous interest generated by the CBS Evening News report about data retention on the hard drives of copiers, faxes, printers and
scanners has provided a unique opportunity for BTA and the industry. BTA has held industry summits on the subject and has worked with the Federal Trade Commission, state attorney generals and state legislatures regarding their proposed legislation. All parties are in agreement that educating the public about this risk is the key to eliminating the compromise of any confidential data.

To date, there have been no reported instances of security breaches due to data retention on business equipment. What has been clearly established is that a considerable amount of misinformation on the issue exists. Following BTA's success in educating the public about
"Toner Phoners," the pamphlet in the artwork below was developed for all dealers to use. This pamphlet can be customized for your company, and you can distribute it with invoices or by salespeople and technicians to customers, civic groups, religious organizations and the general public.
