In another example of Cyber threats to professionals and the importance of Cyber Risk Insurance, malware was included on some thumb drives distributed by a professional organization to its members. According to KrebsOnSecurity (see here), the American Dental Association (ADA) mailed 37,000 thumb drives to members, and that some of those drives may have inadvertently included malware.
The ADA concluded that only a small percentage of the manufactured USB devices were infected.
Dentists should take precautions to ensure that the malware, which may not have been detected by security software, has not infected their systems. And purchase comprehensive Cyber Risk Insurance if it is not already in place.
Cyber Risk Insurance is an essential coverage for any healthcare business, including dentists. Coverages vary widely and some offerings provide comprehensive coverage and competitive pricing.
