Over the past few years the threat from Ransomware has grown in prevalence to where it is now an inevitability and according to Javed Uddin, CEO of HTI, it’s no longer a matter of whether a dental office will get attacked or not, but it’s a matter of when that attack will happen. While Uddin added that most dental offices have taken some initial steps to protect their patient data, most practices are utilizing methods that may have been sufficient in years past, but now no longer meet the mark. Unfortunately, approximately 95% of the offices we walk into are not securing their data at all, or they’re not doing it properly. During this webinar, our speaker will review the most up to date information on how best to protect your practice and what to do if you have a ransomware attack.
- What is Ransomware and why should I worry about it?
- How would a ransomware attack affect my practice?
- How do ransomware attacks happened and how can I recognize a threat?
- What to do if my practice is infected?
- How do I protect patient information and ensuring HIPAA compliance?
This course will not be recorded and shared for on-demand viewing. It is only available live during the scheduled date and time.
