The New York State Department of Financial Services (DFS) cybersecurity requirements for financial services companies went into effect on Septembers 4 of this year. On the surface, it may look like these regulations only pertain to the state of New York – but in reality, they include any party who processes or is otherwise permitted access to Nonpublic Information of New York State origin.
