On May 22, NYDFS announced its newly created Cybersecurity Division, led by Justin Herring as Executive Deputy Superintendent, that is, according to NYDFS, “the first of its kind to be established at a banking or insurance regulator.” The new division will focus on enforcing and issuing guidance on NYDFS’ cybersecurity regulation 23 NYCRR Part 500, advising on cybersecurity examinations, conducting cyber-related investigations, and disseminating information related to cyber-attack trends and threats. NYDFS highlighted Herring’s experience in supervising cybercrime and digital currency cases as Chief of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of New Jersey Cyber Crimes Unit and a member of the Economic Crimes Unit, including investigating money laundering using digital currency and prosecuting unlicensed digital currency exchanges.
