February 15 is a critical deadline for organizations covered by New York State’s Cybersecurity Regulation for Financial Services Companies. Businesses covered by the regulation have to submit a compliance certificate for the prior year, affirming that they’ve met all applicable requirements by the regulation’s deadlines. If you can’t prove compliance, you can’t get certified for the next year.
The 2018 requirements, which mandate practices like annual penetration testing and encryption, are a lot for even large companies. For SMBs, which may not have the resources to consider their risks and respond to new technologies and evolving threats, they’re a massively heavy lift.
