Is your business regulated by the New York State Department of Financial Services (“DFS”)?   A broad range of businesses are, including health, life, and property and casualty insurance companies; banking and financial services companies; mortgage brokers, originators, and servicers; charitable foundations; and New York State regulated corporations.  If your business is among those regulated by DFS, you are likely subject to the new DFS cybersecurity regulations (the “Regulations”) that went into effect on March 1, 2017.  The Regulations establish wide-ranging and rigorous requirements, with staggered compliance deadlines. The first of these deadlines is fast approaching. By August 28, 2017, businesses subject to the Regulations must ensure that they:

1. Designate a Chief Information Security Officer
2. Establish a Cybersecurity Program
3. Develop a Written Cybersecurity Policy

Note: Even regulated entities that qualify for certain exemptions under the Regulations are required to comply with some of the obligations the Regulations impose.

During this webinar, we will provide:

  • A high-level overview of the first set of requirements under the Regulations and practical implications for your business.
  • A timeline of key compliance dates.
  • Best practices to ensure compliance with the Regulations and, more broadly, to limit your cyber exposure by enhancing the effectiveness of your cybersecurity program.
