As promised in part one of our ANPR blog series, this edition will discuss and review the three approaches and how your organization can leverage Cytegic to meet the requirements of the cyber ANPR.

Though only a proposal, the ANPR has increased the level of concern within the regulatory community regarding cyber risk in financial organizations and their current state of controls. The ANPR focuses on these three main points:

  • Focus on systemic risk
  • Prescriptive standards for covered institutions
  • Requires an enterprise-level, three-lines-of-defense approach to cyber risks, with strong board oversight

With the impact of the proposal still being discussed by the regulatory bodies, they have outlined three potential ways to implements the standard:

Approach 1: combination of a regulatory requirement to maintain a risk management framework for cyber risks along with a policy statement or guidance that describes minimum expectations for the framework

Approach 2: Specific cyber risk management standards (e.g., requirement for entities to establish a cybersecurity framework), which would cover the five categories noted in the previous post. For each category, the firm would have to establish and maintain:

  • Policies
  • procedures
  • practice
  • controls
  • personnel and systems
  • as well as a corporate governance structure that supports implementation of, and compliance with, the program across the enterprise and necessary changes to the program due to the firm’s evolving risk profile.)

Approach 3: A regulatory framework that is more detailed than approach 2, detailing specific objectives and practices covered entities would have to achieve for each of the five categories so that they can demonstrate compliance with the requirements
