Holler Law Firm Achieves Global Compliance and ALTA Best Practices Certification
MILFORD, CT, May 3, 2016 – In an age when companies are routinely targeted for cyberattacks and millions of Americans are seeing their personal data stolen, every organization needs a strong cybersecurity plan. Holler Law Firm, one of Connecticut’s largest real estate practices, with nearly half a billion dollars in escrow monies passing through its office annually, today announced it has obtained third party certification from Security Compliance Associates (SCA), representing the highest standard of security for those working in the title insurance and settlement services industry.
“We take the security of our clients’ data very seriously,” said George T. Holler, Founder and Managing Attorney, of Holler Law Firm. “In a recent case, one attorney’s email was hacked, costing his clients almost 2 million dollars in lost escrow funds. Our clients trust in us that their personal information is being protected at all times, and that trust is not something we take for granted. They can now rest even easier knowing that all of our security protocols are approved by the experts and are in line with our industry’s best practices.”
In addition to its ALTA certification, which represents that Holler Law Firm protects its clients’ private data in compliance with the American Land Title Association’s Best Practices, the firm has been deemed GLBA-compliant,
representing that it is in full compliance with federal laws governing the nation’s largest financial institutions. This goes beyond merely protecting clients’ confidential information, assuring that the firm follows industry benchmarks in licensing and protecting its clients’ funds; that it complies with consumer financial
laws; that it produces title insurance policies accurately and in a timely manner; that the firm is properly insured against any errors, and that it resolves customer complaints properly. SCA representatives reviewed all of the firm’s policies and procedures onsite to ensure that Holler Law Firm meets or exceeds the industry standards. Every one of the firm’s employees have completed the Real Estate Data Shield on-site and web training related to the protection of client data.
