Information Security

The settlement industry is experiencing a significant increase in cyber-attacks aimed at stealing closing funds.

Criminals have figured out that closing agents handle millions of dollars on a daily basis, so YOU have become the newest target for cyber fraud.

This is an issue that challenges the credibility and integrity of our industry, and The Fund is commited to making sure Members understand cyber fraud – because no one is immune.
