Getting in Shape – NYDFS Cyber Security Regulations Webinar
Presenters: Shawn Tuma, Cybersecurity & Data Protection Attorney, Scheef & Stone LLP | Bill Belcher, VP Americas, Boldon James In an initiative to protect New York’s financial services industry, a new State regulation has been introduced to protect consumers and financial institutions from cyber-attacks. Effective March 1, 2017, this risk-driven regulation requires all financial services institutions regulated by the Department of Financial Services (DFS) to establish and maintain a cyber security program that will protect both customers’ private data and the technology that supports this. The impact stretches down through the supply chain, as any organization that conducts business with the NYC financial services sector has to adopt the same level of data protection.

NYDFS Cybersecurity Regulations (23 NYCRR 500) New York is one of the biggest financial hubs in the world; as you can imagine where there is sensitive financial information, there are people who want to get their hands on it. It is for this reason major financial firms operating in New York will face stiff cyber security obligations under the new New York Department of Financial Services Cybersecurity Regulations (23 NYCRR 500). This regulation will apply to firms holding a banking, insurance or financial services licence to operate in New York. 23 NYCRR 500 has been effective as of March 1st 2017, although firms have 180 days from this introduction date to change internal systems in order to meet new compliance and regulation standards.
