New York is poised to become the first state in the nation with comprehensive cybersecurity regulation and reporting requirements applicable to the entire financial services industry, with only very limited exemptions. 23 NYCRR 500 (the Regulation) will require banks, insurance companies, and other financial institutions regulated by the New York State Department of Financial Services (DFS) to establish and maintain a cybersecurity program designed to protect consumers and the stability of New York’s financial services industry.
