NMHC and NAA held an in-depth webinar on July 21 on our new white paper entitled, “Multifamily and Cybersecurity: The Threat Landscape and Best Practices.” Cyber risk to the multifamily industry is often overlooked and underestimated. However, apartment firms and their third party service providers regularly collect, use and maintain sensitive financial and personal data about residents, prospective residents and employees that leave them vulnerable to cyber incidents.
Holland & Knight Partner Christopher Cwalina and Associate Kaylee Cox offered insight into the white paper during the webinar, detailing cybersecurity risks and providing overall best practices. Both are also members of the Cybersecurity and Privacy Team at Holland & Knight where Cwalina serves as co-chair.
Ultimately, the white paper highlights the importance of a robust cybersecurity program that includes incident response, evaluation of third-party relationships, oversight, staff training and risk mitigation.
