BuckleySandler Webinar: Cyber Security Assessment - What Will the Regulators Be Looking For?

  • March 18, 2015

In February, the New York Department of Financial Services (DFS) published a reminder about their earlier issued guidance for the banking industry, outlining the specific issues and factors on which those institutions will be examined as part of new, targeted DFS cybersecurity preparedness assessments. Among other factors, banks will be examined on their protocols for the detection of cyber breaches and penetration testing; corporate governance related to cybersecurity; their defenses against breaches, including multi-factor authentication; and the security of their third party vendors.
Please join us for a discussion about the various regulatory agencies with cybersecurity initiatives, the differences in their initiatives, and what they require of your program. Discussion will include the following topics:

  • Who are the regulators in this area?
  • What are they saying?
  • What are they looking for?
  • Practical steps to ensure compliance
