New York Proposes Cyber Rules for Banks

The Wall Street Journal reports that New York has proposed rules that would require banks to establish cybersecurity programs.  The rules, if adopted, would require banks to:

  • Hire a Chief Information Security Officer
  • Implement a cybersecurity program designed to detect and deter cyber intrusions and protect customer data.
  • Certify that controls in this area are adequate
  • Perform annual risk assessments and penetration testing
  • Notify the New York Department of Financial Services within 72 hours of a material data breach
  • Encrypt non-public information transmitted to or stored by the banks
  • Hire and train cyber focused employees.
