Cybersecurity is about more than just keeping your patients’ data safe. It’s about securing your practice and its future, while building and maintaining patient trust. The financial cost of an attack can be overwhelming. Furthermore, research suggests that 65% of individuals whose data is exposed in a breach lose trust in the organization that held that data, and 80% of those individuals will leave the business or organization.
Another important, and perhaps obvious, reason cybersecurity is essential for your dental practice is HIPAA compliance. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act requires that insurers as well as dental and medical practices and providers put measures in place to ensure the safety and security of personal and private information as it relates to health care data.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand the range of attack techniques.
  • Learn how to identify cybercrime tactics.
  • Know best practices for cyber-attack prevention.
  • Safeguard protected health information.
