Just recently, a dermatology practice in Reston, VA was infected with ransomware, meaning thousands of their patient’s files were encrypted and inaccessible by doctors. “More than 13,000 patient records — including patient names, addresses, dates of birth, social security and Medicare numbers, and medical and billing records — may have been compromised”. Not only did this team of doctors have to worry about getting their patient data back, they had to comply with HIPAA regulations and notify every single one of their patients whose files were affected by this cyberattack.

Ransomware is a type of malicious software designed to block access to a computer system until a demanded amount of money is paid and has recently been targeting health care providers of all sizes. Although this particular office has taken steps to prevent future data breaches, it could have been avoided altogether had they a Plano IT Support Company to assist them.
