The new SEC cybersecurity regulations are here–are you ready?
New rules and zero tolerance for getting it wrong is a recipe for stress. Expel can help.
What are the new SEC regulations?
Starting December 18, 2023, here’s what the SEC requires:
- Public (and aspiring public) companies will have to report material cybersecurity incidents to the SEC within four business days
- The SEC also wants details on your cybersecurity risk program, involvement of assessors or consultants, and policies for third-party service providers
Want more details? For all the nitty-gritty legal stuff, check out this handy SEC resource.
So what should you be doing to comply?
Naturally, the regulation is broad-sweeping but nuanced. Here’s a list of what your org needs to do.
And spoiler alert: Expel can help you accomplish all of it (and more).
Identify relevant information
Your cybersecurity infrastructure must identify incidents, determine which are critical, and alert the right members of your team.
Speed is of the essence with this new reg, and four business days isn’t a lot of time. How fast can you move?
Perform root-cause analysis, quickly
Understanding the root-cause analysis and gathering information and context for incident disclosure is necessary. And so is using that info to build resilience.
Generate reports anyone can read
Odds are someone across your board, stakeholders, or investors aren’t technical or InfoSec experts. Translating incidents into plain speak is critical.
