Data Breach Risks for Small & Medium Sized Businesses

Today, small and medium sized businesses (SMBs) are sometimes at a greater risk of cyber-attacks and security breaches than large enterprises and corporations. Seventy-one percent of cyber-attacks happen at businesses with less than one hundred employees due to less secure networks, lack of time, budget constraints, and limited resources for proper security.

Lessons Learned from DFS’s First Enforcement Action Under the DFS Cybersecurity Regulation

The DFS Cybersecurity Regulation 22 NYCRR 500 (“Regulation”) requires businesses operating under NY banking, insurance, and finance laws to implement and maintain certain cybersecurity practices, including risk assessments, documentation of security policies, management of third-party providers, and set strict requirements for data breach reporting. Even though the Regulations were issued in March 2017, they did not become fully effective until March of 2019, following a two-year phased implementation process.
