Join Bradley lawyers Erin Illman and Katherine Henry, along with cybersecurity consulting firm SMLR’s CEO Alan Heyman as they discuss recent cybersecurity regulation, cybersecurity insurance and related business impacts. As cyber-attacks continue to rise, entities who operate in or are licensed by certain states should be aware of increasing state legislation requiring comprehensive cybersecurity policies and required protective measures. In fact, New York is leading the nation with the first-of-its-kind cybersecurity regulation, which requires insurance companies, banks and other financial service entities that operate in or are licensed in New York to comply with minimum standards and cybersecurity requirements. The discussion will focus on New York’s cybersecurity regulation, how to determine if you are a covered entity under the rule, the requirements of the rule, and how to ensure compliance, and the role of cyber insurance in mitigating the risk posed by these new requirements. Mr. Heyman will discuss the practical side of cybersecurity in relationship to the new law. What you need to do, what are the basics in protection and what you must do to comply with the new law from a technical viewpoint? What does Best Practices mean and how to implement? How can the simplest cyber hygiene procedures generate the greatest ROI? What to expect from a potential audit if it comes and how to handle it? Learn how the technical procedures are intricately entwined with the legal compliance and why these are important to you. You need to know how to employ both disciplines to be in true compliance.
