    How to Protect Your Practice From Cyber Criminal, Hackers and Breaches

    Led by CT MGMA, in collaboration with the DE MGMA, MD MGMA, MA/RI MGMA, NY MGMA, PA MGMA, and VA MGMA.


    When You Fall Victim To A Cyber-Attack Through No Fault Of Your Own, Will They Call You Stupid, Irresponsible Or Both?

    It’s EXTREMELY unfair, isn’t it? Victims of all other crimes – burglary, mugging, carjacking, theft – get sympathy from others. They are called “victims”, and assistance and support come flooding in. But if your medical practice is the victim of a cybercrime attack where patient data or any data is compromised, you will NOT get such sympathy. You will be instantly labeled as stupid or irresponsible. You will be investigated and questioned about what you did to prevent this from happening – and if the answer is not adequate, you can be found liable, facing serious fines and lawsuits. You will be required by law to tell your patients that YOU exposed their private records, financials and data to a criminal. Your competition will have a heyday over this, and patients will leave in droves once they discover you’ve been compromised. Your bank will NOT come to your rescue either, and unless you have a very specific type of crime insurance, any financial losses will not be covered.


    Our Cybersecurity Session Will Cover:
    • Number One Security Threat To Your Medical Practice
    • Ways to protect against Ransomware
    • Simple practices to minimize your risk online
    • Why “free email” comes with a big cost
    • The Dark Web
    • Strategies for secure passwords

    Our Security Risk Session will cover the requirement for a Security Risk Analysis for the upcoming MIPS program:

    • What a Security Risk Assessment actually is and is not
    • The most important elements of an assessment
    • Tools and resources if you are considering doing your own
    • Special SRA offer to attendees
