Category: New York Cybersecurity Regulation
It’s a marathon month for the thousands of financial institutions and insurance companies covered by New York’s landmark cybersecurity regulation. In little more than a week, these businesses must file their second annual certification of compliance with the State’s Department of Financial Services. Two weeks later, they must also come into compliance with the regulation’s third-party vendor requirements, the final milestone in the two-year roll out of the cybersecurity regulation.
With the year quickly coming to a close, it’s time for organizations covered by New York’s Cybersecurity Regulation for Financial Service Companies to take stock of their compliance efforts before popping any champagne corks to usher in the New Year.
By today, financial institutions are required to meet their next deadline for compliance with New York’s cybersecurity law. The regulation – enacted in March 2017 –includes a series of rolling deadlines that require banks and insurance companies covered by the law to meet varying data security requirements.
It’s that time again. The third compliance deadline for New York’s sweeping new cybersecurity regulation is less than three weeks away.
That means five new requirements must be in place by September 4, 2018.
