NY Cybersecurity Filing Requirements, 2022

Now that the calendar has turned the page and left 2021 in the rearview mirror, the window is open for business entities regulated by the New York State Department of Financial Services to submit the annual certification of compliance with the cybersecurity regulation. The requirements have not changed (other than a later deadline) since the regulation first took effect in 2017, but here's a reminder of what does and does not have to be done:

  • ​The regulation does not require licensed employees of an agency or brokerage to submit the certification.
  • The regulation does not require licensed employees to re-submit a notice of exemption unless they have changed employers.
  • DFS does not offer a way for the public to determine the exemption a specific licensed individual submitted.
  • If you have a license in your personal name and want to find out what exemption you submitted, we suggest you write to, provide your license number, and ask for details on your exemption.

Every resource we have on compliance with this regulation can be found at and in the News section of this website.
