Information security in general practice
Securing your network and equipment
If your practice has a WiFi network, or offers free WiFi for patients, have a policy for its use.
Ensure you have strong authentication and encryption standards and isolate your internal WiFi network from other networks to limit exposure if compromised. Make sure to set up a strong password to restrict access to the WiFi network so it is only accessible to authorised people.
An effective strategy to protect your practice network is network segmentation. This involves partitioning your WiFi network into smaller networks. This method aims to restrict the level of access to sensitive information, hosts and services while ensuring your practice can continue to operate effectively.1
It is recommended your practice information security lead works with your technical service provider to understand and plan for your practice’s unique environment and ensure your network is closely monitored, robustly enforced and be unable to be bypassed.
