REMINDER: Cyber Reg Certification Due Next Weekend


The deadline for submitting the annual certification of compliance with New York's cybersecurity regulation for financial services companies is this Saturday, April 15. If you haven't submitted the certification for your agency yet, you must do so by the end of the day Saturday.

The certification is one of the requirements in the New York State Department of Financial Services (DFS) regulation Cybersecurity Requirements For Financial Services Companies, which is Part 500 of Title 23 of the New York Codes, Rules and Regulations (23 NYCRR 500.) Subsection (b) of Section 500.17 states:

"Annually each covered entity shall submit to the superintendent a written statement covering the prior calendar year. This statement shall be submitted by April 15th ... certifying that the covered entity is in compliance with the requirements set forth in this Part."

You can submit the certification by visiting the DFS cybersecurity portal, logging in, clicking the link displayed under "Cyber Security Notice" on the next screen, clicking the COMPLIANCE button on the screen after that and following the prompts. Step-by-step instructions are available here

​Your licensed employees who are covered by your agency's cybersecurity program are not​ required to submit this certification. More information about what is required is available in our blog post of January 13, 2023

DFS intends to make several changes to the regulation this year. To learn about them, check out:
