DFS February 2021 Guidance To Cyber Insurers

On February 2, 2021, the New York State Department of Financial Services (DFS) issued specific guidance to property/casualty insurers writing cyber insurance policies, known as the Cyber Insurance Risk Framework (“Framework”). The DFS promoted itself as the first US regulator in the nation to issue a specific guidance on cyber insurance, explaining the suggestions of the Framework are based on continued dialogue with the insurance industry and experts in cyber insurance regarding the shifting landscape of cybersecurity.

Virginia, Oklahoma, and Florida Join Growing List of States With Proposed Privacy Legislation

Since California’s Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) was passed in 2018, Beckage has seen a slew of other states follow suit in proposing and enacting their own comprehensive data privacy bills. Most recently, lawmakers in Virginia, Oklahoma, and Florida have joined the growing list of states with proposed privacy bills. So far this year, New York, Washington, and Minnesota have also introduced legislation governing the ways companies collect, store, use, and share consumer data and we expect to see other laws emerging in the coming months with still no federal data privacy bill in sight.
