Re: Focus On The Real Risk
I hope the SEC is more knowledgeable about cybersecurity risk than they were in 2008 when our financial industry collapsed. Somehow, I think not.

Please provide a copy of the firm's written information security policy." A business's response to that request will go a long way toward demonstrating if the organization has even basic information security practices in place.

Who at the SEC is going to review the answers to questions like that.

Focus On The Real Risk
The SEC should leave cyber-security to other organizations and agencies and focus on the real risks of financial malfeseance taking down the entire economy again. I'm more worried about that than hackers.
