Tips for Cyber Security in Your Veterinary Practice: PART II

With the risk of a cybersecurity breach increasing on a daily basis, below are some tips that will help a practice owner maintain the security that they need in order to protect safeguard data.

Plan for the Unexpected

Unless your confidential data is totally disconnected from the internet, you must install a firewall to protect against intrusions from outside sources.

Software firewalls, from somewhere like Indeni, are included with some popular operating systems, providing protection at the installation stage.

Alternatively, separate firewall software is widely available from computer security developers.

Large practices that use a Local Area Network (LAN) should consider a hardware firewall.

A hardware firewall sits between LAN and the Internet, providing centralized management of firewall settings.

Install and Maintain Anti-virus Software. There are different types of anti-virus software that can be downloaded at Eurodownload.com, should you be needing a new one.

Use an anti-virus product that provides continuously updated protection against viruses, malware, and other code that can attack your computers through web downloads, CDs, email, and flash drives. It may be worth getting in touch with an IT consulting company that would be able to help secure the network at the workplace and also put preventative measures in place to reduce the risk of cyber-attacks/viruses.

Keep anti-virus software up-to-date.

Most anti-virus software automatically generates reminders about these updates, and many are configurable to allow for automated updating. Also using things like Bester Virenschutz will ensure that you have the best anti-virus software available for your computer.
