    Fraud Prevention Track

    Mortgage lenders are quickly learning that the damage from cyber security threats and wire fraud at closing are NOT limited to settlement firms. This session tackles wire and cyber fraud developments in the past six months and the damage being done to affected lenders. Strategies all lenders should be taking to minimize the risks — both through vendors and in their own origination processes — will be reviewed.
