Network security should be any Calgary dentist’s number one priority. With ransomware hacks, attacks, vulnerabilities, and data theft affecting businesses all around the world on a daily basis, it is just a matter of time before your business is hit too. Your network security is not just key to your success, it is also required as per your Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) as per the Health Information Act (HIA).
Hacks & Attacks
These days, hackers, attackers, and even automated web bots are all trying to gain access to your network and ultimately access your patients’ private and your business information. When these hackers are successful, they are able to lock down your data, or worse, they can release your patients’ information to the world, resulting in massive data protection fines to you and huge reputational damage.
With the sheer number of security threats faced by dental offices, it is important to evaluate the vulnerabilities that may affect your business. Lost revenues due to downtime or large fines due to data breaches may not be an option for you and could affect the overall health of your dental practice.
Internal threats are just as, if not more, harmful as external threats. Part of a thorough network security plan is ensuring that employees are using best practices and are educated on their role in keeping the network safe.
If you store patient data, private information, or take credit cards, network security is no longer an option, but a necessity. As per your HIA, PIPEDA and PIPA requirements, you need a team that understands these requirements and can provide the pieces necessary to keep you compliant.
