Hi, and welcome back to Tangible Solutions!

Does your workstation operating system have a pending software update? It could be the only thing standing between your practice and a hacker with malicious intent.

Recently, a computer virus called “WannaCry” exploited a serious security hole in Microsoft Windows, sealing off millions of files from their rightful owners.

Although the attack happened in May, it was only effective against machines that hadn’t been updated with a security patch from the preceding month of March.

Maintaining your practice’s workstation operating system is as easy as keeping it up to date with the latest official patch. Think of it like a regular check-up.

You already stay current with the latest medical trends – do the same for your digital security.

We’ll be back next time with more health information technology tips and tricks. Until then, bye!
