You've heard it many times before. Back up your data. We've often mentioned the importance of backing up data to minimize the damage from a ransomware attack. Perhaps you've gotten started by putting some files on Google Drive or a similar online service. Perhaps some of your employees back up their own files to the service of their choice. Is this enough? Will this help in the event of a serious data loss or security breach?
What if your business suffered a catastrophic data loss today? Would you be prepared? Can you guarantee all your business data is backed up routinely? Have you ever tested the data recovery process? To learn how to build an effective backup strategy, click here.
Start Treating your Practice's IT Network Security Like an Internist, not an ER Physician.
You know the basic differences between a visit to the Emergency Room and a visit to the doctor's office. An Emergency Room visit is reserved for the rapid diagnosis and treatment of one particular issue - one that can be life threatening - so focused and urgent action is a must. Compare that to a routine doctor's office visit where the focus expands to a patient's overall health and may address myriad questions and hopefully some preventive measures aimed at eliminating trips to the Emergency Room. While we can all agree that an ounce of prevention goes a long way, too many practices do not apply this concept to their own IT infrastructure. Despite the stringent HIPAA regulations in place, some practices wait until a severe event such as a ransomware attack, a security breach or the loss of a physical device with unencrypted data to call in the Emergency IT professionals to 'stop the bleeding.' Why not focus on prevention instead? Call eNet Systems today at 281-403-9561 for your risk assessment or visit our healthcare page.
