Introduction

This course will give dental professionals and office staff a basic understanding of the potential cyber threats facing a modern dental office. This will include secure day-to-day practices, the methods hackers use to trick people when attacking computer systems, the proper use of passwords, potential dangers when browsing the Web, and how to be prepared when a security incident strikes.

Please note this is Part II of a two-part series. This course builds upon the concepts covered in Part I (Protecting Your Office Computer Network) and should be read after Part I has been completed.
