      On March 1, 2017, the New York financial services industry will awaken to a new regulatory regime designed to set minimum standards for the development and functionality of cybersecurity programs.  The New York State Department of Financial Services’ (“DFS”) proposed cybersecurity regulation (the “DFS Rule”) will cover any institution doing business in New York pursuant to a license, registration, charter, or similar authority under New York’s Banking, Insurance, or Financial Services Laws.  Companies outside the financial services sector should also take heed, as regulators overseeing other industries may use the DFS regulations as a benchmark for what a “reasonable” cybersecurity ...
