C.Y.B.E.R – Can You Be Entirely Ready?
Five years ago, terms like Wire Fraud, Ransomware, Phishing, Social Engineering and Cyber Breach were not part of a real estate attorney’s vocabulary. Wire call back procedures were not part of a real estate attorney’s daily ritual. Cyber fraud insurance was not part of a real estate attorney’s monthly expenses. Cyber security was never discussed in law school. Today, all of these things are a daily reality for everyone handling any part of a real estate closing – or even just using a computer or cell phone. Each attorney, together with their staff, is charged with the duty to understand these risks, to put effective policies and procedures in place, and to protect themselves and their clients from these risks. We will examine scenarios of how cyber fraud and wire fraud threaten you, your clients and your business. We will also examine how to protect yourself from these daily threats and what to do in the event the event that you are a victim of cyber fraud.
