Black Talon Security, LLC

Topic:  How Ransomware Can Cripple Your Practice with One Wrong Click

Understanding the Facts and Myths Related to Ransomware and Identity Theft

Description: We will provide you with comprehensive information on how ransomware and patient identity theft is impacting practices across the U.S.

Practices often have a false sense of security that their IT vendor is providing adequate security to mitigate the risks of a data breach.  We will discuss the differences between IT vendors and cybersecurity companies and why practices should engage with a cybersecurity company to provide the additional protection from the advanced threats that are affecting practices.

Why your biggest risk is not a malpractice claim, a fire, theft, a sexual harassment claim or a flood...it's a cyberattack.

  • Are you mentally and financially prepared to be shut down for 2-4 weeks after you recover your data?

  • How will you schedule patients?

  • How will you collect A/R?

  • How will you file claims?

  • And, how will you handle the negative PR - including your reputation and lost patient loyalty and trust?

At the end of this presentation, you will have a thorough understanding of the following:

  1. How to protect your practice from ransomware attacks and identity theft

  2. Technologies and solutions that can help minimize the chances of a cyberattack

  3. The differences between IT companies and cybersecurity companies

  4. The steps you need to take NOW!
