SEC’s Cybersecurity Disclosure Rule – Understanding the Impact to Your Business


The SEC has ushered in a new era of cybersecurity requirements and the landscape for covered entities has shifted dramatically. The newly enacted cyber disclosure rule demands immediate attention from public companies and foreign issuers to swiftly adapt to the stringent requirements. Many are scrambling to address key concerns such as: 

  • How does the SEC expect companies to assess materiality under the new rules, and what does enforcement precedent tell us?
  • How should incident response processes, as well as other applicable policies, procedures, and controls, be revised?
  • What can companies do proactively to validate their cybersecurity programs and disclosure mechanisms?
