Here’s a look at what will be addressed during the general sessions:
- What Does the CFPB Mortgage Disclosure Rule Mean to You?
Bob Dylan famously sang “the times they are a-changin'.” For the title and settlement industry, no change will be more drastic than the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s new Integrated Mortgage Disclosures rule. Coming just five years after the last RESPA reform effort, the Bureau’s new rule will require significant and costly systems and process changes to ensure compliance in the new world of closings. Get ahead of the curve and come listen to our panel of experts discuss the biggest workflow and process challenges your operation will face as you transition from today’s HUD-1 to the new Closing Disclosure Form. This is a must attend session to prepare for August 2015. Featured speakers include Phil Schulman of K&L Gates, Tim Armbruster of ClosingCorp, Ruth Dillingham of First American Title Insurance Co. and Richard Horn of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (invited).
- Defend Your Business from Identity Fraud – Recognize Fake Identities
Verifying a person’s identity in a transaction is imperative because of the legal documents being signed and fraud can occur when an agent approves a fraudulent identification as a valid identification, because they were not trained to tell the difference. Glen Garrity of G2 Identity Management will share how to prevent fraud at the closing table by explaining how to recognize a fraudulent identification card.
- You Can Handle the Truth about your NPI
This panel will feature a live hacking session to highlight computer and network vulnerabilities, and provide real-world examples of how vulnerable settlement agents’ systems are to network breaches when it comes to physical and network security. Speakers include Pat Carney of reQuire, Greg McDonald of CloudStar Consulting, Randall D'Arche of WFG National Title Insurance Co. and Andy Maloney of Nashville Title Corp.
