Information Security: Blindspots and Trends



By John Hollenbeck NTP

Many title agencies are small companies with finite resources, yet they come in contact with significant amounts of consumer non-public personal information, and, of course, significant cash in their escrow trust accounts. Many small businesses cannot afford professional information security staff, and all the bells and whistles that may go into a comprehensive information security program. Yet, they are faced with these risks. All of the non-public personal information (NPI) and escrow balances make them a target rich environment. I am looking forward to leading an important panel at ALTA’s Annual Convention that will address some of the biggest security risks facing our industry and hopefully help small-to-mid-sized businesses protect NPI, money and their company’s reputation.

John Hollenbeck NTP is executive vice president of First American Title Insurance Company and president of the ALTA Board of Governors. He can be reached at [email protected]. Hollenbeck will lead a panel of industry experts that will delve into this topic during a session titled “Information Security: Blindspots and Trends” at ALTA’s Annual Convention.

Panelists include Jeff Foltz (chief information security officer at Fidelity National Financial), Shabnam Jalakian (vice president and chief information security officer at First American Title Insurance Company) and Bruce Phillips (senior vice president and chief information security officer at WFG National Title Insurance Company).
