Introduction

In Part I of this course (Protecting Your Office Computer Network), we discussed the role of legal standards such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA); the tech basics underpinning the use of computers and electronic data that come with having a modern dental office; and fundamental computer, mobile device and network security measures to safeguard them. Now we’re going to build upon those first steps towards protecting your practice. In Part II we will delve into the crucial role of secure daily routines, hackers’ tricks designed to separate you from your data (and more), using passwords securely, the risks that come with browsing the Internet, and how to prepare for a security emergency.
