We were honoured to be invited to the Australian Institute of Conveyancers (AIC NSW) Cyber Security Seminar last week. On this two-hour session, the audience had the opportunity to look at the recent cases of cyber fraud against conveyancing practices, and what steps they can take to guard against being affected. Our cyber security experts brought an informative slide deck stuffed with practical cybersecurity tips and advice.
The audience – consists mainly of conveyancers – could take our advice and began protecting their practice from payment redirection fraud and cyber scams.
The following topics were covered in the seminar:
- Reece Corbett-Wilkins (Clyde & Co) – Incident Response in the age of Mandatory Data Breach Notification
- Danielle Manton (Austbrokers SPT) – Emerging cyber risks and cyber insurance policies
- Gabor Szathmari & Nicholas Kavadias (Iron Bastion) – Practical steps to protect your conveyancing practice from payment redirection fraud
Our slides from the event are available below:

We thank Chris Tyler (CEO) and Margaret Colyer (Information Education & Compliance Officer) for the invitation, and for keeping the conveyancing community safe by keeping them informed on the latest scams. Those, who could not attend the event should keep an eye on the AIC NSW members section as a video of the talks is going to be available on the website soon.
