In response to the growing and polymorphic threat of cyberattacks (and a breach within their own system), the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) announced the creation of a Cyber Unit, with the purpose of building on its Enforcement Division's ongoing efforts to address cyber-based threats. The resultant effects — including new regulatory standards at a state and national level — promise to have widespread effects across areas of business, including law firms working with clients affected by legislative changes in the area of cybersecurity.
