HP Inc. has announced that it has joined the Buyers Lab (BLI) Security Validation Testing program for MFPs and printers to help drive more stringent industry standards for printer security.

Printers have therefore become an attractive target for cyber-attackers looking for an easy foot into corporate networks.
