Cybersecurity For Appraisers
Important Tips on How to Protect Your Clients - and Yourself


Alarming news reports about cybersecurity problems have appraisers worried – especially since USPAP requires appraisers to take reasonable steps to protect the confidentiality of client information. Fortunately, technology experts have developed protective measures to help prevent these problems from happening.

The presentation by Kyle Shumaker, President of STG Shumaker Technology Group will provide advice for appraisers on best practices when it comes to cybersecurity, including types of backups and firewalls, virus & malware and ransomware protection, phishing scams, cloud computing and regulatory compliance. The program will include time for discussion with your fellow ASA Chicago Chapter members about cybersecurity problems and solutions in both large and small appraisal firms.
