As the housing industry moves further into the digital era, the risk of cyberattacks has grown exponentially. From data breaches to ransomware attacks, companies in mortgage and real estate are prime targets for malicious actors. That’s why HousingWire invited Mitch Kider, chairman and managing partner of Weiner Brodsky Kider PC to HW Annual Sept. 27-28 in Dallas.
Kider, along with other industry experts, will discuss the biggest threats to businesses right now and ways to harden the housing industry’s defenses.
With 38 years of experience as a practicing attorney, Kider has represented banks, mortgage companies, residential homebuilders, real estate settlement service providers, credit card issuers and other financial service companies. He represents clients in investigations and enforcement actions before the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Department of Housing and Urban Development, Department of Veterans Affairs, Department of Justice, Federal Trade Commission, Ginnie Mae, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, various state and local regulatory authorities and the Attorneys General offices.
Kider also acts as outside general counsel to smaller companies and special regulatory and litigation counsel to Fortune 500 companies. He has written extensively on issues involving lenders and other settlement service providers and speaks frequently on regulatory and litigation matters before trade associations and other industry groups.
HW Annual will focus on All Things Housing, bringing together professionals from real estate, closing, valuations and mortgage to tackle some of the most important topics in the industry, with experts and practitioners to give you the information you can’t get anywhere else.
In addition to Kider, cybersecurity expert Selim Aissi will sit down for a fireside chat with HousingWire CEO Clayton Collins to talk about the overall cybersecurity environment and specific threats to the mortgage industry.
The event will also have sessions covering:
- Expanding homeownership
- How regulators are coordinating their oversight under Biden
- How technology is helping to solve servicing challenges
- Innovating in a purchase market
- And so much more!
HW Annual will be a great time to network as you enjoy the venue, the Omni Frisco, which is situated in a walkable area full of restaurants, bars, and the Star, the site of the Dallas Cowboys practice field. The schedule includes time to discover the latest technology through product demos and time to catch up with peers.
