November is Cybersecurity Awareness Month
November 27, 2018
Implementing cybersecurity policies is one of the most effective ways to protect your clients’ or employees’ PHI. Hackers frequently target databases containing sensitive health information because they can generate huge profits from the sale of ePHI. The information is valuable for identity theft and healthcare fraud.

This week, we share the Department of Health and Human Services newsletter on national cybersecurity awareness month. It contains tips for securing electronic data and preventing bad actors from accessing your confidential information.
