Cybersecurity for Appraisers: Protecting Your Client’s Data

Twilla Case (Epiq Systems) and Joe Leventhal (Dinsmore & Shohl LLP)

Wednesday, October 5, 2016
4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

While cyberattacks on political parties and corporations are frequently in the news, less publicized are attacks targeting professional services firms, such as law firms or perhaps your appraisal firm. You cannot predict such an attack, but you can have a defensible course of action in place should a breach occur, remediating potentially disastrous consequences. The speed in which you know who to call, where the incident occurred, which system was breached, what data was stored where, and how many systems were affected, has the potential to make or break your business.

In this seminar, we will focus on knowing where your data is stored and how to provide a level of care that aligns with the business needs and the regulatory environment in which you operate. This session will give consideration to your obligations under the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice and, in particular, protecting both your own internal information and your client’s confidential information. We will look beyond the obvious commercial risks associated with owning and maintaining sensitive data and help bring defensible insight into knowing where your information assets are stored.
