This blog is for Informational Purposes Only and Does Not Mean that You Have Been Affected in Any Breach of Information, I just wanted to get you some facts and tips with all the recent news about ransomware and data breaches.

The internet, as wonderful a tool as it is, offers criminals a whole new way to illegally affect our lives and the scams/hacks are getting more sophisticated every day. 

This blog is not meant to scare you, rather to keep you informed, get you the facts and get you information on what is being offered to protect you in the face of a potential data breach that you had no control over.  This latest ransomware attack has affected hospitals, provider's offices and pharmacies across the county.  I foresee an intense increase of security measures coming in the future to protect our data, however, it is unfortunate that an event of this magnitude had to occur for the problem to be addressed.  

Here is a link to a guide put out by CMS (the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services) on how to avoid Medicare scams

Trust your intuition and protect your information!
