NEW ORLEANS, LA - 365 Connect, a leading provider of award-winning marketing, leasing, and resident technology platforms for the multifamily housing industry, announced today that its CEO, Kerry W. Kirby, will serve as keynote speaker for a live webcast. The webcast, Navigating the Complex World of Online Compliance, is scheduled to air March 27, 2019 at 3:00 P.M. ET on, the largest media platform in the multifamily housing industry.

Navigating the Complex World of Online Compliance will deliver a comprehensive overview of the latest regulations affecting the way data is captured and transmitted online. The webcast will delve into the monumental global changes in privacy regulations, as well as the importance of terms of use agreements to online operations. The segment also explores the latest trends in digital inclusion, and the measures being taken to ensure that websites, as well as the services provided, are accessible to everyone including individuals with disabilities.

“As technology advances, numerous measures are being implemented to safeguard data, promote digital accessibility, and protect our businesses, ultimately accommodating the acceleration of online interactions and transactions,” Kirby explained. “Change has never moved faster, but along with that change comes the need to identify and mitigate risk, which should notably be included in every companies’ strategy.”

Joining Kirby is property management expert, Ernest F. Oriente of PowerHour , an industry professional since 1988 and the author of SmartMatch Alliances. Oriente and Kirby have presented over 100 webcasts together, covering an array of topics from strategies on maintaining optimum performance of multifamily communities to the latest technology trends. With a combined experience of almost 50 years in the multifamily housing industry, Oriente and Kirby deliver comprehensive, educational, and leading-edge programming.

Oriente responded, “Kerry has his finger on the pulse of the latest innovations in the multifamily housing arena, and I am excited to join him in this discussion of online governance and how it’s re-shaping the way our industry markets, leases, and retains residents. As with all the material we produce webcast, we strive to deliver relevant, straightforward information to our audience, so they can better prepare for the newest wave of developments in the market.”

“The relationship between the collection and dissemination of data is massive in the multifamily housing industry. It is imperative to not only protect unauthorized access to sensitive information, but also to enforce policies that respond to the latest expectations on monitoring data,” Kirby concluded. “Given the immense size of the modern-day rental market, it is crucial that multifamily housing operators realign their strategies to accommodate the changes taking place online. We are excited to share our knowledge of this subject with our industry peers.”
