This timely Comsure conference will consider not only practical steps to protect business and its data but also understand the needs of two island regulators that oversee this area; namely the Jersey Financial Services Commission (JFSC) and the Office of Information Commissioner (OIC).
The JFSC and OIC mutual interests are highlighted in the Joint Statement on the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2018 (Data Protection Law 2018) [click here]

Further, financial services business must understand and take account of the JFSC expectations as outlined in its Dear CEO Cyber-Security Letter [click here]

This letter makes it clear that the Codes of Practice require registered persons to understand and manage risks, including cybersecurity risks, that could affect their business and/or customers.

Also, cyber-security is now part of the JFSC 2019 thematic work (click here)

Also, of interest and further analysis and discussion at the conference will be the JFSC 2017 Cyber-Security Survey on “cyber-security arrangements”.
This survey provided some new information about how registered persons are managing this risk and note some areas requiring additional focus. [click here]
