CertifID helps us make your transactions less scary
Since we’re celebrating cybersecurity all month long, our teams wanted to highlight one of the ways the Futura Title family helps protect your transactions from wire fraud. As much as talking about this issue is important, we all know that’s only half the battle. That’s why we’ve also invested in resources and tools that help keep our customers safe and secure.
Today we’re spotlighting one of these tools – CertifID. This is one of the industry’s most respected vendors, and its owner, Tom Conkright, has been a frequent and popular speaker at events and conferences for years. He was even featured in this clip on Good Morning America this spring. We’ve shared it before, but if you didn’t see it then, it’s still worth the watch because it’s full of tips to beat these fraudsters.
So, what is CertifID? We’re glad you asked. CertifID is a convenient, intuitive solution for authenticating all parties in a transaction and securely transferring wiring information. Taking out email from the equation, is a big deal. Here are three main things CertifID helps us do:
- Send your wiring instructions securely
- Collect banking details for outgoing wires
- Confirm who we are communicating with during the closing process.
Why should our customers love this secure portal? It removes the unnecessary risk of sending and receiving wiring instructions through unsecure email. Cyber thieves are always on the lookout for opportunities to strike, but with the help of CertifID, we make our customers’ transactions more convenient and more secure. Want to know more?
