What Does the SEC’s New Cybersecurity Rule 206(4)-9 Mean for Investment Advisors and Private Funds?
Proposed in February 2022, the rule is designed to promote a more comprehensive framework to address cybersecurity risks for advisers and funds, including their ability to effectively respond and recover from a cyber incident, while also strengthening investors’ confidence in the security of their investments. The proposed changes impact disclosure requirements, include a mandatory 48-hour incident reporting requirement, and establish new record keeping requirements for advisors and funds that are designed to improve the availability of cybersecurity-related information and help facilitate the Commission’s inspection and enforcement capabilities.
