DeNISTifying Cyber Regulations

Many organizations now face the need to comply with multiple cybersecurity regulations.  For instance health insurance companies must comply with HIPAA and, for those operating in New York State, they must also now comply with 23 NYCRR 500.  Implementing policies and procedures for both can be expensive and cumbersome.  If the organization must also comply with other standards, such as PCI or SOX it can become near impossible.   In this presentation Dawn and Alan will present on how one can take a “Rosetta Stone” approach to these regulations and translate them into existing cybersecurity policies which, in turn, can be implemented through standard procedures.  Once the translation between the regulation and the cybersecurity control is defined, well established audit processes then exist to measure compliance.  This allows organizations to have only one set of policies and perhaps more importantly, just the policies they need to comply with all the regulations that govern their conduct.

CDFS Department of Financial Services New Cyber Security Requirements for Insurance and Financial Institutions

On September 13, 2016, the New York State Department of Financial Services published draft regulations addressing Cybersecurity and related business continuity issues for it’s over 3,000 regulated entities in the state.  On Dec 28, 2016, DFS came out with revisions. These regulations, for Financial Institutions and Insurance companies, are just as pertinent to all organizations who wish to have resiliency.
The New York State Department of Financial Services has modified its proposed cyber security regulations and delayed their start date by two months. The proposed regulations are now slated to go into effect on March 1, 2017, with a 180-day compliance window.
According to Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, these are “first-in-the-nation" regulations “designed to protect New York State from the ever-growing threat of cyber-attacks. They “require banks, insurance companies, and other financial services institutions regulated by the State Department of Financial Services to establish and maintain a Cybersecurity program designed to protect consumers and ensure the safety and soundness of New York State’s financial services industry.”
