Open comment period for SEC’s proposed cyber security requirements deadline
The proposed requirements would cover a wide range of entities, including registered investment companies, business development companies, clearing agencies, major security-based swap participants, the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board, national securities associations, national securities exchanges, security-based swap data repositories, security-based swap dealers, and transfer agents.
Framework for managing cyber security risks
The proposed requirements would establish a framework for entities to manage cyber security risks, including:
- identifying and assessing cybersecurity risks
- developing and implementing a plan for responding to cyber security incidents
- reporting cyber security incidents to the SEC.
The SEC is seeking comments on all aspects of the proposed requirements, including the scope of the requirements, the specific safeguards that should be implemented, and the reporting requirements.
