ENCRYPTED, GDPR SECURE AND EFFICIENT COMMUNICATION FOR ESTATE AGENTS

91% of computer attacks come via email. For the Norwegian Real Estate Association, it is important that the industry uses secure communication and complies with GDPR legislation. They have therefore entered into a benefit agreement for their members on the communication solution Verji.

The benefit agreement means that the companies do not have to pay the ordinary start-up cost (NOK 9,990).

WHY AREN’T CONVENTIONAL E-MAILS SECURE?

The Norwegian Data Protection Authority writes on its web site: «Unencrypted e-mail does not go direct from sender to receiver, but via a number of various hubs before arriving at its destination. The communication may be monitored or analyzed ». This explains the reason why 91 % of all cyber attacks come through e-mails and why it is not permitted to send personal data.

Has your e-mail been leaked?

To carry out data thefts hacked or leaked passwords and e-mail addresses are often used. On web page «Have I been Pwned» you can check whether your user name and password have gone astray.

Number of cyber attacks trebled from 2019 to 2020!

1%
of all cyber attacks come through e-mails, according to Deloitte.
1%
of small businesses exposed to cyber attacks are forced to throw in the towel within half a year after the attack, writes NHO.
1%
of the enterprises exposed to ransomware virus in 2019 paid the demand. In spite of this, 50 % of them lost their data according to NorSIS.
