Cybercrime is at an all time high, this course will cover what to look for, how to defend, and what to do in the event of an attack. Attendees will explore the ever-changing landscape of digital security and the reality of risks that impact your practice, especially as practices have a greater dependency on technology resulting from COVID-19. Security is more than having anti-virus, a firewall, encrypted email, and hoping you are safe! You need to protect yourself using enterprise grade techniques and learn what they are.

After this course attendees will be able to:
  • Describe modern security threats and how to best counter them
  • Develop a framework for good security practices and the start of an action plan
  • Identify how cloud and remote access systems are vulnerable
  • Compare old standard security versus enterprise grade
  • Determine if you are at risk for a deadly cyberattack
