All five steps have valuse starting of course with multiple off line back ups. However step four is:
4. Create a response plan
I believe most dentists do not have a plan for cyber disaster, but they should. At the very least you should have phone numbers on hand for your tech support team and your local IT pro. Make sure you know where your back ups are located. Assign basic tasks to team members. Plus have all this written out and printed. If the system goes down or is held for ransom and you only have a digital copy of the disaster plan the plan will be inaccessible just like your practice data.

What is your excuse?
Digital Radiography is no longer new; it has been on the market for close to thirty years. If you are not using it you probably have a convincing personal excuse. On the other hand you could compare film x-ray users to a dentist still using a belt driven handpiece in 1995, thirty years after the air turbine was invented.
There is no longer any excuse. Make 2016 the year you lower your patient’s exposure to radiation, improve diagnostic efficiency and reduce the cost of taking radiographs.
