In this article, we will provide a few tips on how to improve your cyber security, so you can provide the best protection for your patients’ data.
- Keep Your Software Up-to-Date. The first thing you should do to maintain robust cyber security is to keep your software up to date. The longer a program has been available, the longer hackers have had to learn to exploit it—the only way to stay ahead of potential cyber-attacks is to continually update your programs to the latest versions.
- Install Anti-Virus Software. Another thing you should do to increase your network’s cyber security is to install anti-virus software. These programs are designed to recognize malicious software and prevent it from accessing your network or the information stored there. Our team can recommend the best anti-virus protections to help you keep your data safe.
- Back Up Your Data. A third step you should take to improve your cyber security is make backups of your data. We recommend that you store at least three copies of your data, one on your local hard drive, one on an external drive, and one in the cloud.
