Whether it is the safety of your patient data, or the safety of your staff and property, there has been a sharp increase in crime that as a community business owner is concerning. The holiday season in 2013 was an eye-opener to retailers and customers alike, Target and other retailers faced very high profile damaging credit card problems that shook the industry and the faith of their loyal customers. Big or small, this world full of hackers has demonstrated that there is no guarantee of security, unless you take steps to protect your patients and your business. The rise of crime surrounding prescription medications has put the physical safety of the pharmacy at risk as well. This session will help you to find the tools to secure your pharmacy and your patient data, and outline the steps you need to take to keep your pharmacy business and patients safe.
