Due to the increasing number of recent high-profile cybersecurity attacks, US companies must comply with new regulations this year. Legislation, such as the Cyber Incident Reporting for Critical Infrastructure Act, will require increased reporting and transparency for critical infrastructure companies dealing with cybersecurity incidences.

This regulation was signed into law in March 2022 and requires companies like financial services to report cybersecurity incidents such as ransomware attacks, to the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). Another similar recent legislation is the new US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in March 2022 rule proposal that will require publicly listed companies to report to the SEC cybersecurity incidences, their cybersecurity capabilities, and oversight.

These new reporting requirements are a great opportunity for companies across the nation to rethink their cybersecurity defense strategy. For more information on how Network Perception can also help companies create a proactive cybersecurity approach, check out our platform overview.
