Craig A. Newman will Present on Implementing the New DFS Cybersecurity Regulation at a Cardozo Data Law Initiative CLE Program on April 28th in New York City

Craig A. Newman will be speaking on a panel entitled, “Implementing the New DFS Cybersecurity Regulation” at a Cardozo Data Law Initiative CLE Program on April 28th in New York City. The Cardozo Data Law Initiative is a program designed to prepare law students for careers in the rapidly expanding legal fields of information governance, e-discovery, data privacy, social media law, and cybersecurity.

On March 1, 2017, a new cybersecurity regulation promulgated by the New York Department of Financial Services (DFS) went into effect, a regulation that DFS has characterized as a “first-in-the-nation” regulation that requires regulated entities to “establish and maintain a cybersecurity program designed to protect consumers’ private data and ensure the safety and soundness of New York’s financial services industry.” The panelists will discuss the genesis and context of the new cybersecurity regulation, what companies need to do to comply, and any ambiguities or difficulties with the regulation that may need to be addressed going forward.
