Description

Session Description

In the dental office we often think about hygiene, prevention, infection and disease. We know that viruses and disease are ubiquitous and no one is immune from the threat of illness. Like in life, the cyber-landscape is full of risk. Decision makers need to think in clinical terms about their information technology infrastructure. Systems should not be thought of as either ‘clean’ or ‘infected’, but in terms of a wellness model that considers susceptibility, resilience, wellness, vulnerability to infection, and recoverability. This course will help decision makers understand how their networks store and access data. It will give them a checklist-based framework to guide discussions with their IT professionals with an emphasis on multiple, overlapping and mutually supportive defensive systems that balance benefits, risks, and costs.

Learning Objectives
This course will help decision makers:

  • Identify how IT is currently being used, and might be leveraged in their practice.

  • Understand the different pieces hardware, software and policy that make up an IT network

  • Identify the core assets in their own practice that need protection

  • Identify the most significant threats to their business

  • Build their own IT business continuity plan to minimize risk and length of downtime and create robust data backups

  • Understand how and why darkweb players want to target your practice

  • Learn what to discuss with IT professionals, as a decision maker, to build a threat-based layered, defensive network architecture. A check-list based plan will be given and discussed.
