Data leaks within your title company or unprotected systems exposed to cyber theft can mean loss of reputation, loss of customers, government fines, lawsuits and even loss of your business. But while data thieves and hackers continue to find new ways to threaten your data, privacy and technology experts are working just as hard to find advanced and better ways to prevent such intrusions.
On Oct. 4, a team of nationally-recognized, top privacy experts convened to educate the settlement services industry on solutions and techniques to ensure your customers' data is secure and provide important current information on privacy laws. In this 90-minute training, speakers covered:
- The danger zones as data flows through the title processes and where data loss or data breach can occur;
- Complying with the federal laws surrounding data security and data privacy;
- Expectations from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau regarding data security; and
- Solutions for title agents on how to address privacy laws and tips to ensure a secure office.
This Webinar included an opportunity for attendees to ask questions. Participants will also receive the full PowerPoint presentation following the live event, along with related feature articles from October Research, LLC publications.
Register for a live site and have your entire staff listen in and/or order the recording and view the Webinar at your earliest convenience. This Webinar will give you the insight you need to ensure you are on the right path to a safe and secure office.
