Fasoo Sponsors NYDFS 23 NYCRR 500 Roadshow
Cybersecurity News

Fasoo Sponsors NYDFS 23 NYCRR 500 RoadshowOn March 1, 2017 new sweeping cybersecurity regulations from the New York State Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) took effect.  The NYDFS 23 NYCRR 500 regulations affect thousands of regulated financial institutions that do business in New York as well as thousands of Third Party Service Providers that support those financial institutions, world-wide.  The regulations add to the complexity that financial institutions already face in developing and implementing their comprehensive information security programs.  They also bring with them challenges and uncertainty as organizations implement new tools and practices designed to protect customer and company information.

In response to this sea-change, Fasoo is sponsoring a roadshow across three major markets in New York (Rochester, Buffalo and NY city) to help affected organizations comply with the new regulations.  The highlight of the roadshow will be a keynote by Dr. Larry Ponemon of the Ponemon Institute reviewing a study sponsored by Fasoo to gauge industry readiness and reaction to the new regulations.

Is Your Board Prepared For A Cyber Attack?

Is your board of directors prepared for a cyber attack?Another day, another cyber attack.  Just in the last few weeks we have seen headlines about a major data breach at Yahoo announced, accusations that the Russian government interfered with the US presidential election and the E-Sports Entertainment Association suffered a breach of over a million records.

Despite the potential harm from such attacks, there is a general consensus that boards of directors are not taking the necessary actions to defend and protect their companies from these attacks.  The problem is that many people in leadership positions do not understand the real problems and consequences of a cyber attack and do not have enough understanding of cybersecurity risks and how to mitigate them.
