How dental organizations can protect patient data and reduce cyber threats

Thursday, November 4th, 2021 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM CT

Your patient data is precious. The more robust it is, the more value it provides to operations, financials, marketing, engagement, and care delivery. While the transition from paper-based processes to digital solutions has paved the way for powerful patient and practice intelligence, we must continue to address areas of vulnerability. Fighting cyberattacks is an ongoing battle, but Cybersecurity Awareness Month is the perfect time to #BeCyberSmart, revisit best practices for building a cyber-resilient DSO, and put new policies, procedures, and technologies in place.

In this session, dental industry technology and information leaders will share:

  • Routines/practices for identifying vulnerabilities in their systems and organization
  • Surprising vulnerabilities identified and how they were addressed
  • How they identify vendors and systems that will help to keep patient data safe
  • How they educate employees about ransomware, malware, social engineering, and more
