SEC Cybersecurity Disclosure Enhancements: Efforts to Boost Investor Confidence

The big picture: On July 26, 2023, the SEC adopted amendments to its rules on cybersecurity risk management, strategy, governance and incident reporting by public companies subject to the reporting requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

Why it matters: The SEC’s view is that cybersecurity threats and incidents pose an ongoing risk to public companies, investors and market participants, as evidenced by the growing number and greater frequency of occurrences of attacks being launched by cyber criminals who are using increasingly sophisticated methods. The amendments are intended to help assure both timely and consistent information about cybersecurity risks and incidents.

Go deeper: In this Flash Report, we summarise the SEC’s adopted amendments to its rules on cybersecurity disclosures and provide guidance to public companies that will need to comply with these rules as soon as December 2023.

New regulations have organisations focusing on resilience more than ever. We find that even if enterprises are not obliged to meet new requirements, they are developing resilient capabilities. Their leaders know that resilient organisations possess the capacity to withstand adverse unexpected changes and that these organisations will succeed with “business as usual,” even in the face of potential disruption. Resilience components that impact mature operating models include business, technology, cybersecurity and third-party resilience disciplines.
