With the preemption issue pretty well teed up, what do the courts say (to date)? A look at one recent ruling.
Since 2003, I have been predicting a test case/showdown between lawyers who follow the dictates of the states in which they are licensed to practice law versus the conflicting dictates of the rules and regulations promulgated by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) after the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 went into effect. See, e.g., C.E. Stewart, “Sarbanes-Oxley: Panacea or Quagmire for Securities Lawyers?” N.Y.L.J. (March 21, 2003); C.E. Stewart, “This Is a Fine Mess You’ve Gotten Me Into: The Revolution in the Legal Profession,” NY Business L.J. (Summer 2006); C.E. Stewart, “The Pit, the Pendulum, and the Legal Profession: Where Do We Stand After Five Years of Sarbanes-Oxley?” 40 Sec. Reg. & L. Rep. (Feb. 18, 2008); C.E. Stewart, “New York, “New Ethics Rules: What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You!” NY Business L.J. (Fall 2009); C.E. Stewart, “‘Here’s Johnny!’: Carnacing the Future of the SEC’s Preemption Overreach,” 46 Sec. Reg. & L. Rep. (April 28, 2014); C.E. Stewart, “Navigating State-Based Ethics Rules and Sarbanes-Oxley Requirements,” N.Y.L.J. (Sept. 21, 2015).

To date, cybersecurity has generally been viewed as an organizational responsibility, and data breaches similarly have been treated as organizational weaknesses or failures. Against this backdrop of organizational responsibility, the Department of Justice has brought a noteworthy criminal case against an individual for his personal response to a corporate data breach.

In recent years, mostly due to the well-publicized prosecution of Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, FARA has become more of a focus for federal prosecutors. As a result, white-collar attorneys have been consulted more often about whether particular conduct requires registration under the Act.
