Are you cyber-ready?

Cyber attacks continue to devistate those who don't see them coming, often leaving hundreds to thousands of patients vulnerable to identity theft and fraud, not to mention the immense price tag of a data breach for the individual practice, even for small practices. The Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) wants all organizations - including dental practices - to get cyber-smart and start applying cybersecurity actions to protect your patients and your practice from these costly events. Do you know if your practice is vulnerable? Visit CISA's Cyber Essentials Toolkits and learn how you can assess your cyber-readiness and take action. For more information and tools to help you protect your practice, visit the Safety Toolkit's IT Security section.
