The NYDFS issued the final Cybersecurity Regulation (23 NYCRR Part 500) in response to the growing sophistication of cybercriminals and the increasingly volatile cybersecurity climate facing US financial institutions. The goal of the regulation is to ensure the safeguarding of sensitive customer data and to promote the integrity of the information technology systems of regulated entities.
The regulation went into effect on March 1, 2017, with implementation to occur within 180 days (August 28, 2017); it affects entities regulated by the New York Department of Financial Services (DFS).
