The AAO Urges Members to Take Cybersecurity Threats Seriously
The AAO recently informed members of the urgent threat posed by cyber-attacks. Recent news, including the cyberattack on the Colonial Pipeline, demonstrates the devastating impact these attacks can have on an orthodontic practice.
“The AAO endeavors to guide our members through the wide variety of complex issues that affect U.S. and Canadian small business owners. And cybercrime is an exceptionally complex topic to navigate,” said AAO President Dr. Ken Dillehay. “As an association, we must understand how to identify cybersecurity threats and how these can impact our members. The AAO encourages all orthodontic practices to take proactive steps to reduce their cybersecurity risk – because this threat is very real, and it grows more prevalent with each passing year. ”
