What is a Cybersecurity Audit?

What is a Cybersecurity Audit?

In a digitally evolving world, it’s imperative that you have a cybersecurity plan in place. No matter what the size or specialty of your dental practice is, digital security is a must. Having a regularly scheduled cybersecurity audit and assessment for your practice is important.

What is a Cybersecurity Audit?

Cybersecurity audits are very similar to any other audit you may have to take part in. Like conducting a good financial audit, a cybersecurity audit should be performed by a third-party.

Included in a cybersecurity audit will be a thorough review of your digital security policies to make sure those items are being acted upon. An audit can often act as a checklist with important tips that every practice should be doing to protect their data and keep people safe.

What is a Cybersecurity Assessment?

In comparison to an audit, a cybersecurity assessment will check the features and capabilities of your policies and overall cybersecurity infrastructure. An internal group or third-party will run a series of tests to make sure the checklist of items work effectively and protects your practice against digital threats. These tests sometimes include penetration testing on a network, social engineering tests, phishing scam scenarios, and white-hat hacking.

A cybersecurity assessment is a good place to start if you don’t already have digital security policies in place for your practice. Getting an assessment done can educate you on where you practice vulnerabilities are and what steps to take next to prevent a cyber attack.
