Ransomware and your dental office- No Charge Check

 There recently was a segment on Good Morning America about Ransomware. Here is a link to the segment

Ransomeware is a type of malicious software designed to block access to a computer system until a sum of money is paid. Your entire server hard drive becomes encrypted and you have to pay the attacker in Bitcoin. In most cases this will take days and then you have to hope that the attacker send you the key to unlock the encryption. In the mean time your system is down. Backups may not be of help as they may be infected as well. You need to be very careful when downloading files and email attachments in your office.  Ransomware has attacked dental offices.


You should have your system checked. DDS Rescue is offering a "NO CHARGE" and NO OBLIGATION" data security assessment. This service is being sponsored by Patterson and Benco. I use DDS Rescue in my office and I sleep better because of it.
