What Do You Know About the New DFS Cyber-Security Regulation?

NAIFA-NYS wants to help its members prepare for the new, confusing, and potentially costly DFS cyber-security requirements – so we distributed a BRIEF SURVEY for NAIFA-NYS members to help us better understand what they know and need.

SOME KEY RESULTS:  More than 1/2 of respondents learned about the new cyber rules thanks to NAIFA-NYS.  3/4 have no idea if their insurers’ cyber programs cover them.  More than 3/4 either do not or do not know if they have a vendor to help with reporting and risk assessment.
