Is is easy to get started with e-Courseware?
It is very easy. We handle the technology part for you. You just go to our website, log on with your passcode, and take our e-Course.
How can I track my learning experience?
Once you have completed our 20 – 30 minute e-Course, you will take an assessment that measures how well you understand the implications of safe data handling. Computer-graded results are available immediately. The employer receives firm-wide reports on completed assessments.
Is there a lot of technical language in the e-Courseware?
We have developed a common-sense approach with easily understandable practices. Our e-Courseware features real word privacy and security situations. It engages in topics most relevant to Title and Settlement service providers.
What laws and regulations apply to my organization?
- The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act’s Safeguards Rule applies to Title and Settlement Service Providers. The Rule details the necessary protections for customers’ sensitive personal and financial information.
- Federal law requires proper disposal of consumer information. Violations of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Disposal Rule are subject to civil penalties and class action lawsuits.
- The FTC has assessed financial penalties against real estate service providers for shortcomings in data handling practices.
- The FTC has forced companies to engage in costly certification of their security programs and to hire independent third parties for annual audits for as long as two decades.
- State and federal laws require costly individual notification of customers when data are lost or compromised.
Will the e-Courseware reflect the latest regulations?
All our e-Courseware reflects the most up-to-date rules and regulations. In developing our e-Course, we have drawn on our intimate knowledge of the Title and Settlement industry and the expertise of internationally recognized compliance, data security, and e-learning experts.
Why should I worry about data handling at all?
In our digital economy, we depend on technology and sometimes forget how easy it is to make mistakes – even simple ones. Be in control of your risk and maintain your marketplace reputation.
Where can I learn more after I have trained with the e-Courseware?
At Real Estate Data Shield, we believe that closing gaps starts with people’s awareness. If you want to take a deeper look at your operations and manage your risks more thoroughly, we’ll soon offer company self-assessment tools. In addition, we offer individual consulting services to help companies develop appropriate compliance and data security practices.
Is the e-Courseware expensive?
Our courseware is highly affordable. Consider that a response to a security incident averages over $200 per breached record. Employees who are aware of the best data handling practices are less likely to make a mistake, and your company is much less likely to have a data breach.
