All businesses worry about data security, and those that must meet compliance requirements even more so. It can be paralyzing to sort through the articles and ads, screaming that a single data breach could both financially cripple your business and ruin your reputation. As a dental practice owner, your problem isn’t a lack of awareness of the threats but a lack of resources to get secure and stay compliant. We recommend adopting a security-first approach and ingraining cybersecurity methodologies into your practice.
Compliance standards and regulations attempt to establish best practices for data security. Using a security-first approach to compliance strengthens your information stance while easing your compliance burden. Security-first is a mindset. In every business decision, your first question should be, “how does this impact our security?” You need to take a holistic approach to your practice’s security and never make it an afterthought.
It can be tough to adopt this mindset and put it into fruition, and you might not even know what to consider when evaluating security impacts. We can help.
