Digital Risk’s Chief Legal Officer Debbie Hoffman has been quoted in the HousingWire article, “Here’s proof your cybersecurity efforts might totally fail,” regarding how companies should gauge the level of security they need and which methods they should use to maximize their security and minimize the risk of a security breach.
The article was written as a follow-up to a March 2016 HousingWire Expert Webinar that Debbie sat on as a panelist, “Data Privacy and Cyber Security.” During the webinar, Hoffman shared an overview of the privacy laws that govern lenders, as well as proactive measures that company executives and operations teams should take and how to develop cyber security mitigation plans.
Throughout the article, Debbie expanded upon the information shared during the webinar, including her advice that there is no “one size fits all” solution for cyber security.
“’When developing and implementing a security framework that “fits,” companies must return to fundamentals: understand the business and the business strategy; know what assets the company possess; understand threats to similarly situated companies, and align security with the enterprise’s mission. Focusing clearly on risks and a company’s current cybersecurity maturity will help direct a company to focus its efforts on the appropriate areas,’ Hoffman said.”
