Webinar on Legal compliance and an effective information security strategy

On May 23, 2017 from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time.  Prime Consulting International LLC with the Law firm of Tannenbaum Helpern Syracuse & Hirschtritt LLP will be presenting a webinar.

Legal compliance and an effective information security strategy are two of the most important data security issues facing boards and management of financial institutions, asset managers and other companies.  David Lallouz and Michael Riela, partners in the Cybersecurity and Data Privacy practice group of Tannenbaum Helpern Syracuse & Hirschtritt LLP, will discuss recent important regulatory developments and considerations in the data security field. Arnold Felberbaum (the former Chief Information Security Officer of AIG and Reed Elsevier) and Stewart Koenig, Managing Director, both of Prime Consulting International LLC, will discuss boards’ and senior management’s obligations regarding cyber preparedness and response, risk assessments and technical requirements.

We will cover the following topics

1.  Background on the scope of cybersecurity risks to the financial markets and the impetus for broad regulation.

2.  Overview of the legal and regulatory requirements imposed on financial institutions, asset managers and other companies.

3.  How the recent New York State Department of Financial Services cybersecurity regulation impacts both financial institutions and companies that are not regulated by the NY Department of Financial Services.

4.  Key information security strategies (e.g., executive accountabilities, technical requirements, risk assessments, required reporting and vulnerability assessments).

5.  How asset managers and other intermediaries can address the increasingly stringent data security demands from investors, including investor demands for increased documentation, employee training, and diligence on third party vendors.

New York State Departmant of Financial Servicers Information Security Requirements for 2017

 Ever feel like you are playing Information Security Whack-A-Mole?

Given the constantly shifting priorities within the information security program it’s not uncommon for projects and activities to fall behind or even be placed on the backburner.
In fact many CISOs we have spoken to agree there is not enough staff or time available for them to deal with the gamut of issues they are facing.
One CISO who recently joined a new company complained that his new employer is using an old set of generic policies and procedures that do not fit the way they currently operate. The CISO commented “The policies and procedures are far too cumbersome and difficult to understand resulting in business units ignoring them or taking short cuts that lead to potential information breaches that may violate our regulatory requirements. Unfortunately, we are so busy responding to other more urgent issues that we don’t have time to update and rewrite them”. He went on to explain that an update or rewrite is not as easy as it sounds: “Because doing it right requires a good understanding of the applicable regulations, the supporting business process, how the company does business and the associated technologies. Finally, you need someone with enough experience to write the policies and procedures that will be functional and easy to use”. 

Our company Prime Consulting International LLC, (PCI) has solutions for these issues and more.
