28 May Dental IT Services on Ransomware
The world is facing a pandemic that we never witnessed in the last decade. Dental Industry is passing through great challenges. Dental Offices are facing ransomware attacks and they are demanding a humongous amount of money for their data access. You can be the next one. Recently American Dental Association warned that Dental Offices without proper Dental IT Support are vulnerable to attacks. Several Months ago certain Dental Offices were denied access to their records including appointment details, dental records, and insurance information.
The question that arises here is why Dental Offices are the regular victims of Cyber threats. One of the reasons that we found is that Dental Practitioners are often rejecting Dental IT Services to protect their data from ultra-sophisticated cyber attackers.
What Dental Offices do If attackers Asking Ransomware?
As a general opinion, you should compliant with the FBI.Do not pay to the ransomware. Dental offices have an official page for Internet complaints. You can file the complaint by filling the form. If you are willing to pay the amount you don’t have any surety on that, they will give you access to your data. According to FBI Cyber Division Assistant Director James Trainor, “Paying a ransom doesn’t guarantee an organization that it will get its data back—we’ve seen cases where organizations never got a decryption key after having paid the ransom. Paying a ransom not only emboldens current cybercriminals to target more organizations, but it also offers an incentive for other criminals to get involved in this type of illegal activity. And finally, by paying a ransom, an organization might inadvertently be funding other illicit activity associated with criminals.”
