Cyber-Fraud, Liberty Law, Newburyport

Seminar Description:  Today, it is easier than ever for scam-artists, through cyber-fraud, to quietly amass public information about us and our industry (called “Social Engineering”).  The latest national data confirms that these cyber-criminals are getting smarter and learning how to sound like us and behalf like us on-line, so that they can more easily target not just banks and closing firms, but also Real Estate Agents & Brokers.  Their sole purpose is to pose as you and trick your clients into diverting private information or worse, diverting MONEY!  In this instance, protecting yourself and your clients from cyber-fraud in real estate deals IS the new standard of care.  Whether we know it or not, if we work in real estate and in doing so, handle Non Public Private Information (“NPPI”), then we ARE duly-bound to serve as guard & century against all invaders (whether seen or unseen).

Seminar Purpose:  In response to this mounting cyber-fraud threat – and with input and assistance from leaders within the Massachusetts Licensing Commission as well as experts within the insurance and IT communities – LIBERTY LAW has developed this Training Seminar to assist our real estate colleagues in recognizing this very real, emerging threat.  Our goal through this Seminar is to share valuable new information about how the real estate community can protect themselves and their clients from becoming a victim of this new species of cyber-crime.

Seminar Take-Aways:  Through this 60 minute, Newburyport based seminar (along with a robust Q&A), attendees will learn the statutorily required steps that every agent and/or broker must take to protect themselves and their clients’ NPPI and funds.   If the worst should occur, attendees will learn the immediate reporting steps they are obligated to take (as licensed professionals) to report an incident to the Boston Field Office of the FBI and the Massachusetts Office of the Attorney General.
