SEC Rulemaking Necessitates Updating Incident Response Plans

As part of a recently announced strategic relationship, HKA and PacketWatch released a co-authored article on the impact of proposed Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) cybersecurity rulings. The rulings have entered the final stages of their Comment Period and will soon be released in their final form.

Written by HKA’s Michael Corcione, Partner, and Chuck Matthews, CEO, PacketWatch, the article highlights:

  • The Proposed Rules
  • The Impact on Incident Response Programs

The proposed SEC rulemaking will significantly influence cybersecurity risk management, governance, board oversight, and compliance programs.  This action also signals a change in regulatory tenor and elevates cybersecurity to a new level of accountability and transparency.

The article is available on the HKA Website under News and Insights.

“We estimate that registrants will be dealing with hundreds of hours in modifying processes and hundreds of hours more for each incident.”

Michael and Chuck provide their expert insight into actions your organization should take following the SEC’s recent proposed rule on cybersecurity incident disclosures.
