Implement Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) or 2FA
Helps give you an extra boost of security. This method grants access to a website or application only after successfully presenting two or more pieces of evidence to an authentication mechanism.
Create unique passwords for all your accounts, don’t share passwords, and use a password manager to keep track of all your credentials.
Keeping all your devices updated helps reduce the risks of security vulnerabilities. This includes your PCs, laptops, iPads, phones, cameras, firewalls, and all other technology you have in your practice.
Cyber Security Training
Reduce the chances of you or your staff making costly mistakes by providing ongoing and consistent cybersecurity training.
Encrypt Devices That Hold ePHI
A low-cost strategy to achieve “get out of jail free” status if those devices are lost or stolen. Keep in mind this may include PCs along with the more obvious devices such as laptops and portable media like USB drives.
