Cybersecurity 101 for Dental Offices
Thursday, June 29, 2017
8PM EDT/5 PM PDT
It's impossible to live in the 21st century and not be aware of the ongoing attacks against private data. Almost daily, there are reports of the breaches of millions of records. HIPAA has taken an active role in ensuring that dental practices do not risk the security of their data, but we are still seeing multi-million dollar fines and settlements for health organizations that don't take this topic seriously. The recent outbreak of a ransomware virus that affected computers in more than 150 countries has shown that this problem is just getting worse.
The purpose of this webinar is to give dental practices a review of the most common threats that we face every day, and how to best protect ourselves against these threats. And, of course, we need to ensure that we meet all Federal and State guidelines, as well as being as HIPAA-compliant as possible.
In this webinar, you will learn:
Review the various risks that we face
The major HIPAA rules and regulations
How to properly secure and protect the practice’s data
The classic mistakes that dentists make and how to avoid these pitfalls
