Beware Dodd-Frank: Perils with Private Lender or Seller Financing
Do you represent sellers who finance the sale of their residential real property?  Do you represent private lenders or non-traditional lenders whose loans are secured by residential real property? If the response to either question is "yes", then you need to register for this webinar to learn how the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act has dramatically changed your client's (and your) responsibilities.  Attorneys who are unaware of whether their clients may qualify as “mortgage lenders,” “mortgage loan originators,” or “mortgage servicers” may be unintentionally exposing their clients to adverse regulatory action by leaving them unlicensed, unregistered, and unable to comply with the minimum standards for all individuals and business who engage in mortgage lending.    This webinar will provide a discussion of the base regulatory requirements for non-traditional lenders, and identify pathways toward substantial compliance with a growing set of laws and regulations.

Audio Webcast: Cyber and Data Risks, Breaches, and Insurance What You and Your Clients Don’t Know, Will Hurt You!
Do you not know the difference between a cyber and a data breach, or the differences between an “incident” and a “reported breach”? Do you not know that Florida has one of the nation’s most stringent incident reporting laws, or what that law’s requirements are and how they WILL affect you, your law firm, and your clients? Or think your average E&O or CGL insurance policies will protect you or your clients? Then, YOU NEED TO ATTEND the RPPTL’s “Cyber and Data Risks, Breaches, and Insurance” Presentation. Since the number of cyber and data security incidents and the number of reported data breaches have swelled in recent years, it is only a matter of when, not if, a data breach will happen to you, your client, or your firm, whether you be large or small and no matter the industry sector. This CLE Presentation will cover the latest breach trends that are occurring in several industries; some of the best practices and strategies for preparing for, and responding to, cyber and data breaches; the latest Florida breach and incident reporting and response laws; the growing insurance policies that are recommended and often necessary to protect your clients and your practice from excessive liability of cyber and data breaches; and the ethical duties and responsibilities an attorney has to his clients to protect and advise them of the emerging risks of cyber and data breaches and their resulting liability.
