Dentists: Beware of Cyber Threats

Home   /   Dentists: Beware of Cyber Threats

When you went to dental school, you likely weren’t thinking about hackers, cyberterrorism, and cyberextortion.  However, with the growing threat of exploitation of electronically stored personal information, ransomware, and other threats to your practice and the confidential patient information you keep, as well as ensuring your compliance with HIPAA law, it is more important than ever before to take important steps to guard against these issues. Cybersecurity is about protecting the integrity and reputation of your practice.

 

A dental practice’s cybersecurity plan should include many layers of risk management from proper hardware and software, education and training, HIPPA compliance reviews, vulnerability scanning, and periodic network penetration testing. In addition, cyber liability insurance has quickly moved from a new type of insurance coverage in the market to a very important part of every businesses overall risk management program.
