  • cyber-securityGartner estimates about 6.4 billion Internet of Things (IoT) devices today, such as DVRs, surveillance cameras, and many others, all connected to the Web and all with Internet (IP) addresses. By 2020, it is expected that the number of Web-connected devices will increase to 20.8 billion.

    So, why are these numbers relevant to healthcare cyber-security?

    An IoT fact is that these devices were not designed or developed with security at their core. Further, these devices are typically not configured securely.

    IoT = Internet of Threats!

    The focus of this article is to walk through the security challenges associated with IoT devices, which are proliferating healthcare entities. We will examine four key steps that a health-care entity should take to be better positioned to address this area of emerging cyber-risk.

    Konica Minolta Achieves Gold EPEAT Ratings

    , Vice President, Government Sales and Marketing

    epeat-logoEveryone sees articles or news headlines referring to environmental issues. In some cases, they have to do with new standards needed for an industry and, in other cases, concerns about the long-term effects that can impact the environment.

    With all these conversations taking place, it makes me proud to work for a company like Konica Minolta that prides itself on creating new value in order to champion environmental protection and contribute solutions for many challenges facing our global society.

    Nowhere is our commitment more supported than with the Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT), a voluntary standard for product ratings.

    Going Paperless: ECM Solutions for SMBs

    , Director, Enterprise Content Management

    screen_shot_2016-10-14_at_1-36-35_pm-1When you think of paperless Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solutions, you may automatically picture a huge organization with crazy amounts of paper and information. While this scenario is true and ECM solutions do handle those big paper problems well, there also are powerful solutions for small to medium businesses (SMB).

    The thought of going paperless can seem like an overwhelming task for the SMB sector. You may think that you don’t have enough paper documents or information to need an ECM solution. Or, you may struggle with information overload and massive amounts of paper. Small to mid-size businesses have their challenges, too, when it comes to managing their business information.

    It’s all about setting your business up for success and enabling future growth. Setting the infrastructure in place while your business is smaller will increase the workflow and efficiency of how it operates and will end up lowering your costs and improving your bottom line.

    Each October, as fall foliage offers brilliant displays of reds and yellows, people around the world come together to turn the world pink. Consumer products change their labels to shades of pink and professional football teams wear pink gloves and socks and incorporate the pink ribbon on their helmets to raise funds and show support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

    One size doesn’t fit all. I think that’s something that everyone can agree upon. And that becomes really apparent in the business world where companies operate based on scale, with their resources, strategies and requirements varying depending on size. The needs of a small firm will always be very different from that of a large business. I saw that firsthand when I worked for a major international business company with hundreds of thousands of employees and then moved to a privately-owned engineering firm that employed 30 people. Those two experiences couldn’t have been more dissimilar for me. I went from being in a department of 80 to being the only person on staff responsible for all getting accomplished! (more…)

    Security should be a driving force and not an afterthought for senior executives and their boards.

    It is important that senior executives require that their organization formally establish a credible cyber security program. It starts with setting strategic security objectives that must be achieved by December 31, 2016, and December 31, 2017. Think near-term, and think far! The organization must address security and compliance as a life-cycle, as a process. It will lower business risk! (more…)

    Welcome to the Workplace of the Future™

    , Senior Vice President, Business Intelligence Services and Product Planning

    Work is not where you are. Work is what you get done. We firmly believe that at Konica Minolta. And the statistics back us up. By the year 2020:

    • There will be 5 billion more people online. That means even more people connected to a device.
    • There will be 25 billion more connected devices in the world. Those billions of people will be able to make better decisions because data will be more readily available.
    • More than one-third of our global workforce will be freelancers. These workers will not have the same needs for office space but will need enhanced connectivity.

    Decades of Expertise Gives AccurioJet KM-1 Market Uniqueness

    , Vice President, Product Management and Planning

    coolage_resized

    Years ago our industry’s analysts predicted the “paperless office” that was to come with the advent of the digital age, bringing with it the demise of print. Now, decades later, I see a glass that’s half full thanks to industry trends – in growth areas such as industrial and specialty, with a growing high speed inkjet digital color press market projected to grow an astounding 38 percent by 2020 — which we’re well-positioned to take advantage of with our new AccurioJet KM-1 high speed cut sheet UV inkjet press.

    As the old adage goes: Don’t take a good thing for granted.

    How often do we do this in our personal and professional lives?  Probably more than we’d like to admit.  So when that good thing comes along, recognize it, take pride in it and promote it.  That’s precisely what we’re doing with our interoperability capabilities as they grow and become more relevant for more of our healthcare customers.
