Data encryption has quickly become a buzz-word for dentists, with data breaches from lost, stolen, or hacked machines continuing to rise. HIPAA laws aim to ensure that your patients’ data stays protected by requiring that all data be encrypted, at minimum while it is in transit. While this requirement gives a small assurance that your emails, backups and laptops are fully encrypted, we take encryption and security a step further.
Methods for encryption are already built into many of your devices, but are often overlooked. A quick configuration can be the difference between a secure system, and a vulnerable one. When your data is encrypted, then you know you are secure from a breach even in the event of a stolen server, workstation, or backup drive.
We recommend implementing full encryption on the following:
- Local Backups
- Cloud Backups
- Network Shares
- Local Documents
- Cellphones and Mobile Devices
- Outgoing Email
In addition to encryption, we install affordable, state-of-the-art security cables for your server and data-heavy PCs to limit the risk of physical theft. Whether your data is on a Mac, PC, Alpha Micro, NAS, or other Network Device, we lock it down to prevent physical theft of your data.
