Do You Do Business in New York?
The state of New York has announced a series of cybersecurity requirements affecting all agencies that do business in New York state. The new regulation—which will take effect on March 1, 2017—requires banks, insurance companies, and other financial services institutions regulated by the Department of Financial Services to establish and maintain a cybersecurity program designed to protect consumers’ private data and ensure the safety and soundness of New York’s financial services industry.
This new regulation applies to any agency holding a NY license, regardless of where they are located. As a result, PIA National is making you aware of an agreement that PIA of NY/CT/N.H./N.J./ and VT has reached with TAG Solutions. This agreement allows PIA to provide a substantial member-exclusive discount for TAG Solutions’ new, individualized program, which includes the required risk assessment as well as individualized cybersecurity programs and policies that ensures compliance with the new regulations. This program is available to PIA members nationwide.
To access your PIA-exclusive discount, PIA members can click here to go directly to the PIA portal at TAG to enter your contact information. This will allow a TAG representative to contact you and start the process. A special thanks to Mark LaLonde and Kelly Norris PIA of NY/CT/N.H./N.J./V.T.
