Last week witnessed a significant cybersecurity breach targeting Change Healthcare, resulting in the compromise of its entire medical software network. Upon encountering such headlines, practice managers and administrators may understandably experience a sense of alarm, potentially prompting hasty decisions born out of concern for the integrity of their systems.

To alleviate the anxieties associated with navigating such incidents, we reached out to Trish Nolan, an expert from Digital Systems Integrators. Known for their expertise in constructing tailored, dependable, and secure networks for dental practices, Patricia Nolan previously collaborated with us in 2020, delivering a webinar on Telehealth strategies amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

Drawing upon her knowledge in the field, Patricia Nolan generously provided us with several invaluable recommendations, which we are pleased to share with you:

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) is at the forefront of preemptive and responsive measures against potential cyber threats. Their website offers a plethora of invaluable information and resources catering to various aspects of cybersecurity.
