Guest: Themos Pentakalos

Recorded: Tuesday, July 26th

Length: 1 Hr 30 M

Webinar Details

Recently, there have been a number of reports of doctors being held hostage by ransomware.  Ransomware is malicious software that hackers use to prevent you from accessing your critical data, and then demanding ransom to regain access to it. 

Themos PentakalosChief Operating Officer for ChiroTouch discussed:

-What are the major security threats to chiropractors

-Why healthcare providers like chiropractors make perfect targets for ransomware attacks

-How to devise a plan to protect your practice and your patient data from ransomware and other security threats

“It will never happen to me” is not a plan, nor is it realistic.  Your only defense is to get informed and take all reasonable measures to protect yourself from these attacks.
