DENTISTRY and Data Breaches

NO LONGER EVEN NOTICED?

Data breaches are now so common that hardly anyone in healthcare notices them – especially in dentistry. I imagine that more than half of the data breaches from dental offices are never reported, and their patients never warned that their identities might be available on the internet.

Whether you ignore this problem or not, this will not end well, folks.
