NY DSF Compliance for Insurance Companies
We assist regulated financial institutions like insurance agencies subject to the NYDSF Cybersecurity Regulation (23 NYCRR Part 500) released in 2017. These regulations function to protect sensitive client data and the integrity of regulated entities. Broadly speaking, impacted entities must implement a comprehensive plan that identifies and mitigates cyber risk and regularly assesses their cybersecurity risk posture. We help entities regulated by the DFS, like insurance companies, handle NY DFS requirements, including but not limited to:
- Establishing a cybersecurity program
- Monitoring, identifying, and managing risks
- Appointing a Chief Information Security Officer
- Vulnerability management and penetration testing
- Performing periodic risk assessments
- Incident response planning
- Reviewing and limiting access privileges
- Reporting cybersecurity events
