I'll Be Watching You: Privacy Issues for Real Estate Professionals (002)

Privacy has become a significant issue in American life. Technology has made it possible for others to obtain, legally and illegal, highly private information. Real estate agents face significant risk since they regularly receive highly confidential information from their clients, information that can easily be stolen thanks to technology. We will discuss the impact of technology on personal and professional privacy; constitutional and statutory protections on privacy; the NCREC’s position on confidentiality before, during, and after the formation of an agency relationship and its requirements and recommendations regarding cybersecurity.
And yes, we will discuss drones and nannycams, too! Wait to see the video "Real Estate Agents Gone Wild!"
