In a busy business environment like a pharmacy it can be easy to forget to do a full review of your security procedures around your computer systems. Les Hutchins, QS/1 Data Systems senior manager of information technology, says it’s an ongoing issue that needs attention, as potential data thieves become more sophisticated and the connections between sensitive pharmacy data and the larger world are more prevalent with remote access to cloud-based services. Attention to passwords, software updates, and resources available to pharmacy owners and staff will pay off in the long run by avoiding breaches.
