Defending Yourself Against Cyberattacks!

Posted on May 16, 2017



Dear Friends, 

Once again ransomware and cyber-security are in the news. A worldwide attack by a virus called “WannaCry” hit over 200,000 users in 15o countries this weekend. KHOU Channel 11 covered this attack and brought Poindexter Dental back in the News. It was December 2016 when Poindexter Dental was the victim of a ransom ware attack that encrypted all our files on our server.  We were prepared for this situation with our external backup system, installed in anticipation of hurricane season.

KPRC news covered our ransomware attack on Click 2 Houston.

The advice given in these reports is prudent for all computer users, make sure your software is up to date, and maintain a set of 3 rotating backups (recommended) that are kept in a safe place. The Washington Post published an article on how to defend yourself against ransomware.

Poindexter Dental appreciates your trust in us when you chose us for your Oral Health Care and we are happy to provide you with the knowledge to keep you informed and healthy!
