In New York’s iconic Times Square, millions of people gather every year on New Year’s Eve to watch the ball drop. For the people who come, and the millions of others who watch the event on TV, it’s a time to cast off the old year, and remember the good, while ringing in the New Year, and hoping for continued health and prosperity.
However, if you are an IT Security Professional, working at a financial services organization in New York, the ball drop signifies the start of the state’s New York Cybersecurity Requirements issued by the Department of Financial Services.
With the proposed New York State Cybersecurity Requirements taking effect on January 1, 2017, financial services companies will be mandated to implement programs designed to ensure confidentiality, integrity, and availability of key systems. They must certify through a CISO that programs are in place and are functioning. This includes identity and access control, data classification and more.
