In a highly anticipated meeting, on March 9, 2022, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC” or “Commission”) proposed significant new cybersecurity disclosure requirements.  The proposed rule would require current disclosures on Form 8-K about material cybersecurity incidents and periodic disclosures about cyber-related policies, procedures, and governance practices.  The proposal builds on the SEC’s previous guidance in Corporation Finance’s “Disclosure Guidance Topic No. 2 – Cybersecurity” and the Commission’s 2018 Release, “Commission Statement and Guidance on Public Company Cybersecurity Disclosures.”  Companies should begin planning now for more extensive and complex disclosure requirements likely to be enacted from this proposal.  Please join Gary M. Brown and Gina Ginn Greenwood of Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP and SEC Institute Director George M. Wilson as they discuss existing and proposed disclosure requirements and planning for new disclosures.
