With a fast-approaching deadline, banks and other financial organizations need to have stronger cyber security systems in place by March 1st. Last year, the state Department of Financial Services introduced new standards that would protect customer data and the types of personal information that were stolen in the Equifax hack. Some of these standards include regular staff training, vulnerability assessments, and multi-factor authentication. Steve Spano, the President and COO of CIS (Center for Internet Security), explains what these new standards specifically entail and emphasizes how customers can also protect themselves from these security breaches.
