CYBER SECURITY FOR YOUR PRACTICE

If a cyber breach occurs, the average dental practice data breach can cost a dentist anywhere from $100,000 to more than $1 million. According to HHS - Office of Civil Rights, an average of 4,707 individuals are affected by a breach in a dental practice. To avoid serious liability and exposure, practice owners must develop a comprehensive cyber security compliance program.

 
Physical Theft: Common Data Breaches.

The most common type of data breach in a health care setting, including a dental practice, is a physical breach. A substantial amount of the data breaches that occur are a result of devices that are physically stolen from a practice, car, home or elsewhere.

 
Cyber Security for Your Practice.

Dentists take great pride in providing the best possible care to patients, but what about protecting patient data, as we move into the digital age? 

From crypto-ransomware, which attempts to extort money from dentists in exchange for their hacked patient records, to theft of computers and flash drives, dentists must take the proper steps in order to make sure they are not putting their patients and their practices at risk.
