Please note by using an insecure password you are increasing the risk that your data may be accessed by malicious actors which could result in theft of your patients and/or practices information. This could be classified as a Data Breach which has implications under the Australian Notifiable Data Breach (NDB) Scheme as well as the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
