Ted Augustinos, a member of the steering committee of Locke Lord’s Privacy & Cybersecurity Practice Group and Office Managing Partner of the Firm’s Hartford office, was quoted in a Bloomberg Law article examining the New York Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) set of cybersecurity rules and exemptions that exist for many small financial institutions. Augustinos noted these small financial companies, including small banks and insurers, "will continue to struggle" with whether they have to comply with various New York cybersecurity rules. He added that the NYDFS and larger financial institutions can help smaller companies through webinars, best practices, regulatory alerts, and continuing education.
