Real estate professionals face many threats not covered by E&O.

  • In 2017, nearly $1 Billion in transactions were the target of wire fraud. It worsened in 2018.
  • According to the FBI, scams targeting real estate rose 1,100 percent from 2015 to 2017 and monetary losses increased 2,200 percent.
  • Losing your phone or getting hacked, can trigger data breach notification and credit monitoring laws.
  • Posting a picture or providing a home inspection that is copyrighted can result in a copyright infringement claim. Attorneys and others are buying the rights then suing.
  • Ransomware can lock all your data unless you pay a ransome

Investigating, Defending, and Recovering from an incident can cost thousands. Not to mention the lost sales and stress.
