Acsense’s Okta Resilience in the Age of 23 NYCRR 500 

Recent IAM breaches have demonstrated significant vulnerabilities within identity management systems and processes, casting a spotlight on the necessity for enhanced cybersecurity measures in the financial sector.

In response to the escalating cyber threats and to continue its leadership in cybersecurity, New York State has recently updated its groundbreaking cybersecurity regulations. Governor Kathy Hochul and the DFS have enhanced these regulations to bolster cyber governance, mitigate risks, and protect businesses and consumers from evolving online threats. These amendments, including enhanced governance requirements, stronger controls against unauthorized access, and more rigorous risk and vulnerability assessments, set a new national standard for cybersecurity.

Acsense’s IAM Resilience Platform is strategically designed to help financial institutions navigate and comply with these enhanced mandates, focusing on critical areas such as business continuity and disaster recovery.
