Meet and surpass cybersecurity regulations with iV4's comprehensive security program and consulting services.

A New Normal

NY DFS Cybersecurity Regulation

On March 1, 2017, mandatory cybersecurity requirements from the New York State Department of Financial Services (DFS) became effective.


The NY DFS Cybersecurity Regulation (23 NYCRR Part 500) is in response to the growing sophistication of cybercriminals and the increasingly volatile cybersecurity climate facing US financial institutions. The goal is to protect sensitive customer data and promote the integrity of the information technology systems of regulated entities.
