Statement On Cybersecurity, SEC Commissioner Michael S. Piwowar

Date 21/09/2017

Effective management of internal cybersecurity risk is critical to the SEC achieving its mission and to protecting the nonpublic information that is entrusted to this agency.  I commend Chairman Clayton for initiating an assessment of the SEC’s internal cybersecurity risk profile and approach to cybersecurity from a regulatory perspective.  In connection with that review, I was recently informed for the first time that an intrusion occurred in 2016 in the SEC’s Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis, and Retrieval (“EDGAR”) system.[1]  I fully support Chairman Clayton and Commission staff in their efforts to conduct a comprehensive investigation to understand the full scope of the intrusion and how to better manage cybersecurity risks related to the SEC’s operations.
