Cybersecurity Regulation in the United States: Governing Frameworks and Emerging Trends

6 October 2016
Mayer Brown Book

Companies across industry sectors have developed risk-based cybersecurity programs to respond to the substantial and complex cyber threats they face. Managing regulatory risk has become an important element of these cybersecurity programs, as regulators use rules, enforcement actions, and guidance to establish an increasingly complex framework of regulatory expectations.

This 80-page book offers insights on the regulatory frameworks applicable across key sectors of the United States economy as well as emerging regulatory trends across sectors. The guide’s launch coincides with National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM) 2016. Mayer Brown is an official Champion of NCSAM.

Authored by lawyers in the firm’s global Cybersecurity & Data Privacy practice, the guide serves as a valuable resource for in-house counsel, executives and other stakeholders as they work to satisfy regulatory requirements in a manner that is consistent with business needs and that complements a risk-based approach to cybersecurity across the enterprise.

The guide addresses a wide range of industry sectors, from banks to the Internet of Things, and covers federal agencies from the Federal Trade Commission to the Department of Defense. It is designed to:

  • Guide companies as they evaluate their regulatory obligations regarding cybersecurity;
  • Assist businesses in identifying priority issues and emerging trends in cybersecurity regulation; and
  • Help board members, senior management, in-house counsel and other stakeholders anticipate and minimize financial, reputational and legal risk.
