Information security in general practice
Securing your network and equipment
Preventive strategies are required to keep your practice information security systems running properly. Undertaking regular and ongoing software and system maintenance can ensure computers and other equipment run smoothly and that your practice information is protected.
Computer systems need to be physically protected from theft and unauthorised access. The role of your technical service provider is not only to provide an emergency response when problems arise, but to also undertake regular and ongoing maintenance of your systems and provide advice on what physical protections are required.
UPS is a device that provides power to enable computers (especially mission-critical hardware) to shut down normally and safely on an occasion when the main electricity is lost.
Put a sticker on your UPS with the date of the battery change as part of your maintenance program.
