Review of Securities & Commodities Regulation


Cybersecurity regulatory compliance is imposing a myriad of new responsibilities on counsel of financial firms. The authors discuss, in detail, areas in which such counsel should play a key role, including “reasonable” cybersecurity protections, board oversight, public disclosures, and compliance with specific rules. They then turn to incident response, managing vendor risk, and M&A transactions.
