The ground-breaking New York State Department of Financial Services (NYS DFS) cybersecurity regulations have transitioned into full force and effect. The law requires nearly all regulated banking, finance and insurance organizations operating in the state (“Covered Entities”) to conduct an annual, professional, comprehensive cybersecurity risk assessment, with normative requirements beyond assessments: bi-annual software vulnerability scans, penetration testing, installation of a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) or a Virtual CISO, reporting data breaches within 72 hours, use of multifactor authentication, encryption and more.
Assured offers a comprehensive set of products and services to satisfy the NYS DFS regulations completely—from assessment to compliance to vulnerability scanning, multi-factor authentication, encryption and more, for Covered Entities ranging in size from the Fortune 100 to a 12-person insurance brokerage firm.
