Black Talon Donates Cybersecurity Services to Dental Associations

Cybersecurity firm announces extension of offer through end of Q1 2023

Katonah, NY, February 3, 2023: Black Talon Security, a leading NY-based national cybersecurity
firm, has announced it has donated $250,000 of complimentary cybersecurity services and
software licenses to more than half of state dental associations. Given the success of this
cybersecurity initiative, Black Talon is extending the offer to sign up state and national dental
associations for its services, free of charge, through end of Q1 2023.

Following the cyberattack against the American Dental Association, many state associations
were concerned about the security of their organizations. According to Gary Salman, CEO, Black
Talon Security, this offering represents his company’s way of supporting and protecting the
dental community throughout the country.

“Preventing the theft of data and preserving business continuity must be a primary focus for all
dental associations,” said Salman. “The average cyberattack will force an organization to shut
down for two weeks as well as have a negative impact on its reputation and credibility. This
does not even factor in the potential for ransomware attacks which could cost anywhere from
$30,000 up to millions of dollars.”

Black Talon is offering dental associations the following services to help identify vulnerabilities
on computers and firewalls that hackers use to gain unauthorized access to networks and data:

  • External Penetration Test performed by a Black Talon ethical hacker to help determine
    the overall security of the environment
  • Black Talon Academy which contains various training modules to help employees
    identify email and internet-based threats
  • Security Risk Assessment to evaluate how and where hackers may attack
  • Artificial Intelligence (AI) based threat detection known as Extended Detection and
    Response (XDR) for all computers and servers
  • Real-Time Internal Vulnerability Management and Daily Firewall Scans
  • EAGLEi Security Portal – a real-time security portal that allows users to see security data
    in a central, easy-to-access location
  • Dedicated Project Managers – a team of project managers who will assist in the overall
    security process to ensure successful implementation
  • Virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO) who will help protect an
    organization’s infrastructure, data and people so that a full-time CISO does not need to
    be hired

Black Talon Security secures 25,000 devices across the country and has trained more than
13,000 business professionals, many of which are in the dental and healthcare industries, on
current cyber threats including ransomware, phishing emails and social engineering.
