Cybersecurity and Your Dental Practice
October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month and Digital Technology Partners is dedicating this month to educating the dental community on the importance of cybersecurity.
October is the perfect month for cybersecurity awareness because the potential risk of a breach or cyberattack is one of the scariest threats to your practice. However, with the proper support, monitoring, and guidance you can safeguard your practice – freeing you up to focus on your patients and growing your business.
Cybersecurity Awareness Month
Cybersecurity Awareness Month was created by the Department of Homeland Security and the National Cyber Security Alliance in October 2004. It was launched in an effort to help Americans stay safe with the rapidly growing Internet use and increase of cybercrime.
Since its inception, cybersecurity awareness has grown even more important as our lives and businesses become increasingly digitized. Many high-ranking US officials have been part of the event including former DHS Secretaries and Presidents. This month, Digital Technology Partners also wants to do our part to help educate and protect our colleagues in the dental industry.
