Consumer Data Protection During COVID-19 - Recorded
As community-based organizations in the housing industry fight to improve the lives of some of our nation’s most vulnerable populations, an unfortunate data breach may undermine the financial stability of the very people they have committed to serve, while exposing the organization to reputational harm and potential lawsuits.
With the onset of COVID-19, organizations across the country physically shut their doors but continued to serve their communities virtually. Many housing practitioners have been working from home, often taking highly sensitive consumer data home with them. Whether the data is on paper or on a laptop, protection of this data is not only good practice, in some states it is also the law. If an organization suffers a data breach, all 50 states require affected individuals be notified, and in some cases the State Attorney General. In a day when data breaches and cyber-crime is at an all-time high, solid data protection practices are an operational necessity.
