With more than 20 years working with brokerages, associations and MLSs under his belt, Matt Cohen, chief technologist at Clareity Consulting, has seen the ever-changing shifts in real estate technology firsthand.
A sought-after speaker on the topics of security and data, Cohen will take the stage during Inman’s Hacker Connect event on Monday, August 7, to get hands-on with attendees who will learn how to evaluate their current web, mobile and API security while also getting the chance to test out some of the latest tools available (for free) to help minimize threats.
