Protecting the Client’s Personal and Confidential Information
 

Built on Relationships and Trust

Real estate brokerages, associations, and MLSs handle and store sensitive data every day.  Brokers and agents collect PII (Personally Identifiable Information) including: Social Security numbers in order to perform credit checks, bank account information contained in mortgage documents and closing statements, personal checks used for deposits, credit card information to make various payments for inspections or appraisals, Divers’ license numbers collected as a safety precaution when agents leave the office with a new client for the first time, as well as mobile phone numbers, information on  relatives and references, etc.  This information is collected because the agent is trying to help their client, but in reality, may be exposing themselves to legal risk if not handled and disposed of properly.

“According to a recent report prepared by KPMG, 50 percent of surveyed businesses in the real estate industry believed that they were not adequately prepared to prevent or mitigate a cyber attack.”

 

A Better Approach

The Real Estate industry continues to be target due to the amount of sensitive information being communicated and transmitted of part of real estate transactions.  The more collaborative and distributed and industry or company is the more difficult it is to control and safeguard valuable information.  Data security is more important than ever.
