Wyoming Continuing Education COURSE
21 - Wyoming Real Estate Risk Management and Technology
The business of real estate has serious risks. For each transaction in which you’re involved, you are the caretaker of consumers’ finances, sensitive personal information, and overall well-being. Further, the explosion of technological tools to keep the industry running smoothy and efficiently comes with its own array of risks, such as data breaches, confidentiality breaches, and security issues. And let’s not forget your own personal safety and liability concerns.
Managing your risk in all of those areas can be challenging, but the consequences of not doing so are severe: financial loss, lawsuits, physical harm, and more are real possibilities. But strong, well thought out policies, watertight recordkeeping practices, proper use of technology, and other best practices we’ll cover in this course will protect you, your firm, your customers and clients, and your career.
