The Foley Adviser

Reminder: March 1, 2016 Effective Date for Information Systems Security Programs Including Cybersecurity for NFA Members

February 24, 2016

As noted in our earlier Foley Adviser, March 1, 2016 is the effective date for NFA member firms (including futures commissions merchants, commodity trading advisors, commodity pool operators, introducing brokers, retail foreign exchange dealers, swap dealers, and major swap participants) to adopt and enforce written policies and procedures to secure customer data and access to their electronic systems.

If you have any questions regarding implementation of these policies and procedures, please contact your Foley Hoag attorney.
