NFA Cybersecurity Notice Takes Effect March 1
19 February 2016
View Client Update
The NFA’s Cybersecurity Interpretive Notice requires NFA member firms to adopt and enforce written policies and procedures to secure customer data and access to their electronic systems.
This Cybersecurity Interpretive Notice will become effective on March 1, 2016, and applies to all NFA membership categories -- futures commission merchants, swap dealers, major swap participants, introducing brokers, forex dealer members, commodity pool operators and commodity trading advisors.
Firms that are working diligently to come into compliance, but are not fully there by March 1, can likely expect a collaborative and non-punitive approach from NFA. In light of the Notice, cybersecurity is a likely topic in future examinations.
