Collaboration between organizations began in January 2018; in support of SDAR's recognized need for a solid Cybersecurity solution to offer their members. After learning their needs, GSWS developed a custom Cybersecurity framework, specifically designed for individuals in the Real Estate industry.
Partnership services become publicly available April 2, 2018 and will be highlighted at San Diego's Elevate Real Estate Conference and Expo on April 27, 2018 at the San Diego Convention Center. In addition to participation at the 2018 SDAR EXPO, GSWS will provide SDAR members with an educational article on Cybersecurity monthly (via the SDAR newsletter) and provide quarterly classes on Cybersecurity at the SDAR corporate offices throughout the year.
"Today's cyber threats are becoming more sophisticated and are impacting thousands of businesses each year. We are pleased to partner with GSWS to provide and extra layer of insight, education and preparation to avoid these attacks for our more than 20,000 members."
– Kyle Pietrzak, Vice President of Risk Management, Greater San Diego Association of REALTORS®.
"Wow. So here we have a (semi)unregulated industry built on a workforce of independent contractors, possessing private data, working in a mobile environment, conducting high dollar transactions within tight timelines that involve multiple 3rd parties. What could possibly go wrong?
By partnering with SDAR, we were able to customize our proprietary framework (Security in a Box™) for their needs. This is a high-risk industry that's terribly underserved. We're excited to be part of the solution."
– Dave Tuckman, President/Owner of GSWS
