Education Helps Real Estate Professionals Combat Identity Theft And Hackers

Toronto, Canada (PressExposure) April 16, 2008 -- With identity theft, privacy breaches and personal safety issues reaching an all time high in North America, it is crucial that real estate professionals learn how to safeguard information for their own protection, and that of their clients.

REALTOR® University and Learning Library Inc., have teamed up with the security and privacy experts from Informatica Corporation., to launch a unique suite of courses that address emerging risks to REALTOR® activities. The offerings capture a complete set of issues related to safety, security and privacy, offering real estate professionals anywhere-anytime availability at an unbeatable price.

E-learning leader Learning Library Inc. (LLI) has partnered with Toronto-based information risk leader Informatica Corporation to conduct the industry research and develop the course content. Informatica president Claudiu Popa believes the industry’s needs are common across the continent. “We see demand for this type of education from real estate professionals across North America” explained Mr. Popa. “The profession has significant inherent risks, and many of them are very poorly understood. Most real estate professionals are already aware of the issues surrounding their use of personally identifiable information. Our program helps them protect and grow their business as they capture the trust of their clients and effectively differentiate themselves from the competition.”

These unique courses arrive at a time when professionals need access to critical knowledge and readily applicable information to:

• Better manage the sensitive customer information they collect; • Comply with applicable standards and legislation; • Protect their own business, their information and their reputation; • Safeguard the mission critical, competitive information they depend on, and; • Keep the trust of their valued clients.

Real estate professionals will now be able to access these internet-based courses from anywhere at anytime. Sabine Steinbrecher, CEO and founder of the Learning Library Inc. explains that “Access and courses have been designed to maximize ease, simplicity and learning. The courses are interactive and extremely well designed. Franchises can also inquire about private access, branded and fully customized versions of the courses for their teams. ”
