Identifying Malware and Cyber Attacks

Scams (from phishing attacks in particular) are on the rise. When those attacks succeed, they can cost your healthcare business a fortune. Managed IT services aim to secure your information through the use of cutting-edge encryption methods and impenetrable software.

It also supports training for your teams to ensure they recognize and avoid phishing scams. Comprehensive training is critical to help your team members understand that they make up an important part of your company’s defenses, and that they are the easiest prey. 

For example, your team members must be able to recognize that an email that does not contain your signature is not actually from you, and they should not respond with sensitive information. 

Your employees should be able to discern malware and false portals from genuine texts and emails. They should also know when and how to report suspicious communications.

These are just a few of many examples of how IT services train your employees to become security assets. 

Keeping Your Data Safe

Transferring existing data from older software to safer software can increase security. However, if not completed carefully, the transfer can cause new problems. For example, data can be corrupted along the way. Our services allow easy transfers that prevent data corruption.

It is also important to keep a regularly updated backup of your files. One issue many professionals face is the scramble to recover lost data when backups are overlooked. While it can often be done, the labor hours lost in doing so count as lost revenue. A solid data backup is a system you can bank on. 

Outsourcing Your IT Department

Having an in-house IT expert on hand is demanding for the IT specialist, and those who can solve high-end IT issues are difficult to find, and sometimes overworked, as their skills are often in very high demand. 

Managed IT services keeps your healthcare IT infrastructure operating at peak performance through regular maintenance and on-the-spot troubleshooting and repairs. Third-party IT service providers often solve the same issues for multiple companies each day. 

There isn’t much time wasted on diagnosis. In other words, when you outsource IT, you have an arsenal of solutions that are just waiting for problems. Any security questions you have can be directed to an expert problem solver for precise, scalable assistance. Schedule a consultation today to learn more.
