IAOP Launches Real Estate & Facilities Management Chapter
Virtual Chapter to Hold Inaugural Webinar Meeting, June 14, 2016
This latest IAOP chapter will promote the outsourcing profession through knowledge sharing, education, networking and insightful discussion in benefit of the overall outsourcing ecosystem.
Managing Cybersecurity and Data Privacy Risk in Real Estate and Facilities Management (RE and FM) Transactions will be the meeting focus and industry leaders from Mayer Brown will present on why this has become a top issue at the highest levels of companies in RE and FM organizations.
"The prevalence of new technologies, evolving business models and workforce changes are providing new opportunities for RE and FM corporate functions and service providers to collaborate,"
RE and FM organizations have seen an increase in the data that is collected, in the level of interconnection between companies and providers, and in regulation related to such data. One out of five companies is expected to suffer a data breach over the next two years and the potential resulting direct and indirect costs are large and growing every year. Mayer Brown will also discuss how the legal landscape is changing and what recommendations they would make to mitigate and manage this risk through the various phases of contracting.
"As a uniquely member-driven association, the success of our chapters depends on the active support of many, many organizations,"
The RE and FM Chapter will provide customers, providers, advisors and academics in the industry an opportunity to share best practices and collaboratively improve each of their organization's results.
"Collaboration is the foundation of every innovation,"
The inaugural webinar meeting, taking place on June 14, 2016, from 11:00am to Noon EDT, is open to IAOP Professional Members. It will give a brief introduction of the chapter, review the chapter charter and governance team, and hold a discussion of potential future chapter meeting topics.
