Many of the provisions of the New York Department of Financial Services’ Cybersecurity Regulation are now in effect, and firms are looking ahead to the March 2019 third-party requirements. Some industry professionals believe that compliance with this regulation will become the “gold standard” for hedge fund managers and that the SEC or other states may adopt similar measures. Please join the Hedge Fund Law Report’s sister product – Cybersecurity Law Report – on December 6, 2018, at 12:00 p.m. EST, for a complimentary webinar on best practices for complying with the law. James Shreve, partner at Thompson Coburn, and Shawn Malone, CEO of Security Diligence, will join the Cybersecurity Law Report’s Rebecca Hughes Parker to discuss how the regulation’s provisions lay the groundwork for various aspects of a cybersecurity program, as well as how fund managers and other firms can create a program that is efficient and satisfies regulators.
