NYDFS cybersecurity: Pen testing and vulnerability assessments

One of the requirements of the New York Department of Financial Services’ (NYDFS) cybersecurity regulation is for organizations to perform regular penetration testing and vulnerability assessments.

Banks and other financial institutions that do business in New York State will soon have to conduct penetration tests once a year, and perform vulnerability assessments twice a year. Both of these should be based on an organization’s risk assessment.

The compliance deadline for these requirements is March 1, 2018.

As part of IT Governance’s continued coverage of the NYDFS Cybersecurity Requirements, we will be delivering a live webinar on this topic.

‘Addressing penetration testing and vulnerabilities, and adding verification measures’ will take place on April 4, at 11:00 am (PST)/1:15 pm (EST).

Led by Alan Calder, IT Governance’s founder and CEO, the webinar will cover best practices for penetration testing and vulnerability assessments. It will also provide advice on how to include staff training in an information security system that addresses people, processes, and technology.
