Introduction – Data Protection & Security

Data Protection & Security for Dental Professionals will provide dental professionals with a fundamental understanding of the potential cyber security issues facing a modern dental office. But, rather than pages and pages of text, the course is broken up into a series of video segments concerning various aspects of cyber security. The course will begin with a relatively quick overview of HIPAA, and then dive into tech basics and the threats facing – and steps needed to protect – dental office computers, mobile devices, networks, and the practice and patient data they contain.
