Maintaining your Customers’ Confidence
A mortgage broker’s reputation is irreplaceable. You bank on the trust your customers place in you. While you are working hard to maintain that confidence, hackers are continually seeking to undo your efforts with a data breach. Among the mountains of applications, credit reports and loan approvals, you maintain quantities of valuable information. As a “covered entity” under New York’s DFS, mortgage brokerages must comply with DFS Part 500. As a trusted and knowledgeable mortgage professional, you know that you must protect the data in your system. Of course, all enterprising professionals would love to combat fraud and thwart hackers, but how?
The Nuts and Bolts
At minimum, your DFS program must include-
- Comprehensive and periodic risk assessments
- Written policies and procedures
- Review/limitation of access privileges
- Limitations on data retention
- Third party service provider policy
- Reporting compliance and cybersecurity events to DFS
Every single business overseen by the NYS DFS must comply with this basic part of the regulation. Essentially, the rules create two levels of compliance: Nonexempt or Limited Exemption. Limited Exempt companies need to comply with 7 out of 16 sections (the minimum) of the regulations. Nonexempt companies need to comply with all 16 sections of the regulation.
