Over the last year, ransomware attacks have been decimating the dental community and shutting down practices of all sizes for 10+ days. Over 75% of the time, ransomware attacks result in the theft of patient data and costs often exceed $200,000. If the ransom is not paid, all your patient information and images are auctioned for sale on the Dark Web. Cloud backups, firewalls and anti-virus software are not the answer... yet 90% of practices across the US are relying on this technology to protect their practices. Your firewall and anti-virus software will not stop data theft and/or most ransomware strains.

Learning Objectives:

  • Gain a better understanding of the technologies/methodologies and training that must be in place to protect your data and to keep your doors open.
  • Understand the impact of a cyberattack against a dental/specialty practice.
  • Outline the difference between IT companies and cybersecurity companies, evaluate the need for specialization and also learn the financial and emotional impact of a cyberattack against your practice.
