Closing In On Cybercrime:

How to Shrink the Window of Opportunity and Reduce the Pain and Expense of Data Breaches

Cyberattacks are at an all-time high. And as a Mortgage Broker, you either have the type of data cybercriminals crave or you represent a gateway to it. A breach is all but inevitable; it’s just a matter of when it happens to you—and what you’ll do when it does.

In this day and age, it’s not enough to just prevent or respond to an attack; you need to actively prepare for one so you can get ahead of the damage and avoid lasting reputational harm. To learn more, join Derrick Leue, President & CEO of PROLINK, and Claudiu Popa, CEO of Informatica Security and Founder of the KnowledgeFlow Cybersafety Foundation on September 29, 2021! We’ll help you structure your Cyber Risk Management plan to limit the window of opportunity for cybercriminals and become resilient in the face of attack.
