Payment Fraud Risk and Prevention in the Real Estate and Construction Industry – Who bears the risk of loss when payment is made to a cybercriminal?

Cyber Impersonators are doubling down on phishing attacks and other business email compromises. This threat is very real in the real estate and construction industries — where thousands of dollars are wired or transferred daily for closing and progress payments to sellers, contractors, and suppliers.   

Once the cybercriminal has the funds, can you claw back the money? What role does insurance play in reimbursement and which party benefits? What does the law or your contract say, if anything, about which party bears responsibility and the risk? 

This presentation provides key takeaways including:

  • Prevention techniques to avoid becoming a victim of cybercriminals in the real estate and construction industry.
  • Contractual techniques addressing risk of cybertheft or cyber payment.
  • The role of insurance.
  • A litigation update about how courts are resolving these disputes.

Join Privacy & Cybersecurity Partner Elizabeth Rogers, who specializes in risk mitigation and response to cybersecurity threats and breaches, and Partner Roy Wagner, Leader of the Michael Best Construction Practice for this very topical discussion.
