Future-Proofing Your Business: Adapting to the New SEC Cybersecurity Rule (Part Three)

The SEC’s new rule on “Cybersecurity Risk Management, Strategy, Governance, and Incident Disclosure” has shaken up the corporate world – and left some wondering where to start. While the immediate and short-term actions required for compliance are crucial, it’s equally important to consider the long-term implications.

How can you future-proof your business in this new regulatory landscape?

In your third and final post (for now) on the subject, we’ll explore the outlook of cybersecurity regulations, offer advice for information security teams, and discuss how CDI’s suite of solutions can help you stay ahead of the curve.

Part 1: Understanding the New SEC Cybersecurity Rule >>>

Part 2: Determining Materiality and Legal Implications >>>

The Future Outlook of Cybersecurity Regulations

The SEC’s new rule is just the tip of the iceberg. As cyber threats continue to evolve, so will the regulations governing their disclosures. Companies should anticipate more stringent rules covering wider arrays of various industries, not just from the SEC but also from other regulatory bodies both domestically and internationally.

The Role of Technology in Future-Proofing

Technology will play a pivotal role in helping companies adapt to future changes in cybersecurity regulations. Advanced portfolio solutions like Palo Alto Networks, CrowdStrike, SentinelOne, Fortinet, and Cisco offer robust security features that can adapt to evolving threats. These technologies help in immediate threat mitigation and provide analytics and insights that can be invaluable for long-term planning.

Advice for Information Security Teams

IT security professionals need to be more agile than ever. Continuous education and training are crucial. Teams should be well-versed in the latest cybersecurity trends, threat vectors, and mitigation strategies. They should also be familiar with the legal aspects of cybersecurity, as the concept of ‘materiality’ and disclosure requirements will continue to evolve.

The Importance of Continuous Monitoring

Continuous monitoring is not just a best practice – it’s a necessity. Arctic Wolf, Rapid7, Expel, Palo Alto Networks (Unit42), CrowdStrike, and SentinelOne provide real-time monitoring capabilities. These tools can detect anomalies, flag potential security incidents, and provide actionable insights, all of which are crucial for long-term cybersecurity strategy.

The Need for 24×7 Management

In today’s interconnected world, cyber threats don’t adhere to a 9-to-5 schedule. This makes 24×7 management essential. Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) like CDI offer round-the-clock services, ensuring that your cybersecurity posture remains robust at all times.

Global Standards and Their Impact

It’s important to consider how the new SEC rule aligns with or differs from cybersecurity regulations in other countries. Companies operating internationally will need to comply with multiple sets of regulations, making a unified cybersecurity strategy essential. CDI’s global partnerships with technology providers can help you create a cohesive, cross-border cybersecurity strategy.
