Hello,

In a situation where 75% percent of production printing (customer checks, documents, etc) is being outsourced and the remiaining printing is lacking justification of keeping a lease on the printers being used for this purpose in the Data Center. Data center operations would like to end the lease to save money and move the remaining printing to another location in the building that does not have enviromental controls or security card access. The room has standard locks and is where they do printshop work such as brochureware, posters ect. Of the remaining 25% there is 20% customer facing checks and the rest is vendor checks, employee reimbursement checks, customer documents and programming development printouts.

With this information is there a way to use some compensating controls to make this new situation work or should this not be done at all.

Any input would be welcome.

Thanks

I know this is late but I would not have a check printer in an area that can be accessed by anyone other than the ones authorized. The onyl other thing you could do is have the check paper secured and having to load check paper every time you want to print checks, but then an authorized person would have to be waiting for those printed checks. Kind of silly to do it that way though.
