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.

Defend Your Business Against Identity Fraud – Recognize Fake IDs

Glen Garrity
G2 Identity Management


Any criminal can search the public records of a residence and assume the identity of the out-of-town owner of the residence. As gatekeepers of the transaction, it’s important for title agents to verify the identities of the parties involved. Glen Garrity will offer training on how to recognize a fraudulent ID and prevent costly court proceedings. During the seminar, he will use real and fake IDs and discuss Social Security card features among other identity theft topics. During lunch, Garrity will be in the ALTA booth for hands-on training on these features.

The third pillar of the ALTA Best Practices addresses security of non-public personal information (NPI). In this session we will provide real world examples of how “bad guys” can access NPI from settlement agents and demonstrate potential vulnerabilities settlement agents face from NPI breaches when it comes to Network Security. Attendees will learn where they are most at risk for security breaches and how they can protect their companies against these breaches.

The Age of Wisdom and Foolishness: Navigating Conflicting IT Currents

ALTA President

Rob Chapman
Old Republic National Title Insurance Company


If Charles Dickens were a modern IT executive his quote from a Tale of Two Cities “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness,” could not be more relevant in the title business today. Mobile computing and use of tablets and smart is growing at an accelerating rate providing access to data anytime, anyplace. While technology advancements increase productivity and lower transaction costs, it also opens the door to data protection issues and new, sophisticated risks to organizations, such as data breaches and fraudulent disbursement of escrow funds. Don’t miss a CIO’s perspective on options to safeguard our companies and how ALTA’s Best Practices can help you navigate through the conflicting IT currents.
