Your Organization is at RISK with Every Uninformed IT Asset Disposal Decision

There are over 500 Federal and State regulations governing IT asset disposal

Back Thru The Future understands these risks and has the proven tools and the experience to guide our clients through this complicated regulatory landscape

New NYS DFS Regulation 23 NYCRR 500 Effective 3/1/17 Requires All NYS Based Financial Services Businesses to Reassess Your Data Destruction Procedures

500.13 Limitation on Data Retention:

As part of its cybersecurity program, each Covered Entity shall include policies and procedures for the secure disposal on a periodic basis of any Nonpublic Information identified in 500.01(g)(2)-(3) that is no longer necessary for business operations or for other legitimate business purposes of the Covered Entity, except where such information is otherwise required to be retained by law or regulation, or where targeted disposal is not reasonably feasible due to the manner in which the information is maintained.

You are required to maintain auditable records of your  “periodic destruction” of obsolete non-public sensitive information

The “auditable” records must include:

1. Evidence of your periodic destruction activity

2. Regular training of employees for the performance of this task

3. Annual risk assessment and continued suitability of your process.  Keep in mind changes in data storage technology

4. Third party “vendor due diligence” records.  Be aware of the OCC Guidance Letter OCC 2013-29 “Third-Party Relationships Risk Management Guidance”  (Link to OCC letter)

You must retain these auditable records for a period of 5 years.
