Decoding Cybersecurity: Insider Insights for Mortgage Professionals

As cyber threats continue to evolve, Mortgage Brokers, Administrators, and Lenders face unprecedented challenges in securing their organizations. More sensitive data is being collected, stored, and shared digitally than ever before and despite efforts to improve their risk profiles, it’s getting harder and harder for businesses to keep up. Cybercriminals keep innovating, regulators are expecting more, and securing cyber insurance is more challenging and expensive than ever.

In this digital age, unravelling the cybersecurity web is a must. How can you navigate working in a digital world? How can you keep your clients, and their private information, safe? More importantly, how can you keep your business safe—and without breaking the bank? To help you out, PROLINK has partnered with Coalition to present an exclusive one-hour webinar for members of the Canadian Association of Private Lenders (CAPL). Join us on Tuesday, May 7, 2024, at 10 AM PST / 1 PM EST, for a lively panel discussion led by industry experts.
