Salman-Cybersecurity of Patient Records and Protected Health Information




Over the last year, ransomware attacks have been severely affecting the dental community and impacting practices of all sizes. Ransomware attacks may result in the shutdown of your office and theft of patient records and confidential health information. Ransom demands can even exceed $200,000. If the ransom is not paid, your patient personal and financial information may be auctioned for sale on the Dark Web. Cloud backups, firewalls and anti-virus software may not provide complete protection…yet 90% of practices across the US are relying on this technology alone to protect their data.
