In the piece, he explained that any inquiry by the SEC would look for proof of precautions handled well in advance of a breach.

“It’s no longer an IT guy’s problem. This is a board-level issue,” said David, who is also a member of the ABA’s Cyber Security Task Force.

The piece included highlights from David’s role as a panelist on the Cyber Security & Compliance panel at the NAREIM 2015 Legal & Compliance Council Meeting in Boston in November. The program centered on the changing rules of real estate and covered the evolving economy, SEC War Stories, Investor Reporting & Communications, Board Level Awareness and Compliance with Cyber Security, and Structuring for Different Capital Sources.
