New risk assessment webinar added to NYDFS cybersecurity series

By August 28, organizations that are regulated by the New York Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) will have to comply with the first part of the Cybersecurity Requirements, which includes maintaining a cybersecurity policy and program. The cybersecurity program should build on the results of the organization’s risk assessment.

The risk assessment is an essential part of the cybersecurity program that should not be delayed. With the new regulation’s requirements, NYDFS regulators will be looking for more than just a spreadsheet. Many companies may see this requirement as a gruelling task, but it does not have to be. There are many software solutions out there to help you.

If you want to learn more about risk assessments and the NYDFS Cybersecurity Requirements, you should register for the NYDFS – a guide to risk assessment webinar. Delivered in partnership with Vigilant Software, the webinar will cover the importance of the risk assessment and the ideal timeframe for conducting it, and will include a demonstration of vsRisk™, a risk assessment software tool developed by Vigilant Software.

Register for this webinar, which will be presented by Alan Calder, founder and CEO of IT Governance, and Michael Pollington, Vigilant Software specialist, on July 12, 2017, 10:15 – 11:00 am (PDT) 1:15 – 2:00 pm (EDT).
