Welcome solo and group practice owners! We are Liath Dalton and Evan Dumas, your co-hosts of Group Practice Tech.

In this episode, we explain what group practice owners need to know about antivirus protection.

We discuss what implementing antivirus software actually entails; who needs antivirus software; resources for free antivirus software for Windows and Mac; the importance of regularly updating security software; what is the responsibility of the group practice; whether a BAA is necessary with an antivirus and antimalware provider; and our Device Security Center, where you can find more information on the other technical security steps required for any devices touching PHI.
