In his article, Addressing Cyber Security:  New Tools and Laws Combat the Threat, Multi Housing News contributing editor Jeffrey Steele writes about cyber risks, risk management, and insurance coverage for the multi housing industry for the February 2013 edition of the magazine.

The article opens:

The growing threat to companies in the multifamily industry from cyber-attacks is serious enough that the National Apartment Association staged a webinar in 2012 entitled “The New Cyber Reality for the Multifamily Rental Housing Industry: Threats, Responsibilities and Risk Management Strategies.”  [Link added]

In this special tech report, Multi-Housing News interviews two of the leading participants on that panel to discuss the types of threats the industry faces, legislative developments currently underway, and what measures companies can undertake now to ensure they are prepared in the event of such attacks.

Mr. Steele interviewed my former colleague, Brian Finch, and me, for the article, getting our thoughts on cyber and privacy risks facing the multifamily housing industry.  We discuss data breach laws that could affect the multifamily housing industry, including the current slate of 46 different state data breach notification laws, current legislative developments, and risk mitigation tools.  We also give some predictions as to the future of cyber and privacy risks.
