Are you a small or midsize business (SMB)? Most skilled nursing and senior living organizations find themselves in this category and like all other SMBs, cyber security should be a top concern given that 60% of companies impacted by cyber attacks go out of business.

The onus is on business owners to create a culture of cyber security across the workforce. Make staff feel part of the team when it comes to blocking out attackers -- train them to recognize and avoid threats. Many companies now offer phishing resistance training, which is a great tool to have in your belt.

Lastly, we can't stress enough the importance of password management. It's estimated that 60% of employees use the same password across multiple work and home applications. Educate them on creating better ones, automate your password expiration policy and consider multi-factor authorizations (MFAs).
