Supporting Your Practice

Join a Free Live Webinar on Encryption Essentials for Dental Practices

Encryption is a hot topic these days. We have heard about it in the news…how Apple refused to release the code to the FBI to access the San Bernardino shooter’s phone, how encryption can be used against us through a virus called ransomware, and numerous other discussions. Indeed, it’s a new buzz word in technology. For dentists though, it’s an absolute necessity throughout many aspects of the digital dental practice.

I will wager that many of you have heard the word encryption, but don’t have a full understanding of what it is, why it’s so important, or how and where it must be applied. You might also not be aware that in most provinces, it’s your legal responsibility to implement it as part of privacy law compliance.

If this resonates with you, we have just the live Oasis Case Conference for you on Friday September 23 at 1:00 pm Eastern (10:00 pm Pacific). On that day, Anne Genge, a dental privacy and security specialist from Healthcare Compliance Network Inc. will simplify and demystify the concept of encryption in the dental practice. You will learn the essentials quickly and easily, and take away strategies for bulletproofing your practice data.

You will also learn:

  • What is encryption?
  • Why would a dental practice need it?
  • Where do you need to implement encryption?
  • How you implement encryption?

Up to 100 dentists can join the live Case Conference as “View-Only” participants on a first-come-first-served basis. At the appointed time, all you have to do is click the link below and follow a few easy steps. Once you join the conference, you will be able to see and hear the conversation and view the slide show Anne Genge presents that day. You will not be seen or heard, but you will be able to type in questions and comments throughout the presentation.

The live Case Conference will be recorded for general dissemination on Oasis at a later date and summary information will be shared with Oasis Discussion’s general audience. There is an advantage to join the live webinar and that is your ability to pose your questions to the specialists and get instant answers, just as you would in a study club setting.
