SEC Aims to Strengthen Financial Market’s Cybersecurity Measures


With cybersecurity costs predicted to reach the trillions, the SEC is looking to extend and enhance cybersecurity measures across the financial sector.

Key Takeaways:

  • The SEC is considering the extension of a current compliance requirement to capital markets that do not currently require them, such as market makers and broker-dealers.
  • The rule, Regulation Systems Compliance and Integrity, requires that firms back data up, test for cybersecurity concerns, and prepare plans for business continuity in case of a breach.
  • Other new regulations may include disclosure of data breaches and the subsequent updates to notifications made to affected clients.
