NAR's Guides to Protecting Real Estate Information

The Guides to Protecting Real Estate Information will help you take your first steps toward data security. Whether you're new to real estate or a veteran, a real estate practitioner or an MLS executive, the guides offer plans and strategies you can follow to make data security a manageable job in your office.

The guides detail the fundamental questions and answers regarding data security. You'll not only learn why data security is critical to your business success but you'll also learn steps to become more security conscious, such as installing security software on your computer, complying with federal and state privacy and security regulation, and asserting your data ownership through copyright and other technology protections.

The guides also provide best practices you can incorporate in your daily routine today. Among the practical tips are: identify what sensitive information is received from business partners, install and update virus scanning and protection software, and do not share account(s), passwords, Personal Identification Numbers (PIN), or similar information used for identification and authorization purposes.
