2019-23629. Self-Regulatory Organizations; The Depository Trust Company; Notice of Filing of Proposed Rule Change To Require Confirmation of Cybersecurity Program  

  • Start Preamble October 24, 2019.

    Pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Act”) [1] and Rule 19b-4 thereunder,2 Start Printed Page 58190notice is hereby given that on October 15, 2019, The Depository Trust Company (“DTC”) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“Commission”) the proposed rule change as described in Items I, II and III below, which Items have been prepared by the clearing agency. The Commission is publishing this notice to solicit comments on the proposed rule change from interested persons.

    I. Clearing Agency's Statement of the Terms of Substance of the Proposed Rule Change

    The proposed rule change consists of modifications to the Rules, By-Laws and Organization Certificate of DTC (“Rules”) [3] in order to (1) define “Cybersecurity Confirmation” as a signed, written representation that addresses the submitting firm's cybersecurity program; and (2) enhance the DTC application requirements and ongoing requirements for Participants and Pledgees to (a) require that a Cybersecurity Confirmation be provided as part of the application materials for all Participants and Pledgees, and (b) require that Participants and Pledgees deliver to DTC a complete, updated Cybersecurity Confirmation at least every two years, as described in greater detail below.

    II. Clearing Agency's Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change

    In its filing with the Commission, the clearing agency included statements concerning the purpose of and basis for the proposed rule change and discussed any comments it received on the proposed rule change. The text of these statements may be examined at the places specified in Item IV below. The clearing agency has prepared summaries, set forth in sections A, B, and C below, of the most significant aspects of such statements.

    (A) Clearing Agency's Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change

    1. Purpose

    (i) Overview

    DTC is proposing to modify the Rules in order to (1) define “Cybersecurity Confirmation” as a signed, written representation that addresses the submitting firm's cybersecurity program; and (2) enhance the DTC application requirements and ongoing requirements for Participants and Pledgees to (a) require that a Cybersecurity Confirmation be provided as part of the application materials for all Participants and Pledgees, and (b) require that Participants and Pledgees deliver to DTC a complete, updated Cybersecurity Confirmation at least every two years.

    The proposed change would require all Participants, Pledgees and applicants to deliver to DTC a signed, written Cybersecurity Confirmation, which includes representations regarding the submitting firm's cybersecurity program and framework. The Cybersecurity Confirmation would be required to be (1) delivered with the application materials for every applicant for membership as a Participant and applicant to be a Pledgee, and (2) updated and re-delivered at least every two years by all Participants and Pledgees.

    As described in more detail below, the Cybersecurity Confirmation would help DTC to assess the cybersecurity risks that may be introduced to it by Participants and Pledgees that connect to DTC either through the Securely Managed and Reliable Technology (“SMART”) network [4] or through other connections. The proposed Cybersecurity Confirmation would allow DTC to better understand its Participants' and Pledgees' cybersecurity programs and frameworks and identify possible cybersecurity risk exposures. Based on this information, DTC would be able to establish appropriate controls to mitigate these risks and their possible impacts to DTC's operations.

    (ii) Background of Proposal

    DTC believes it is prudent to better understand the cybersecurity risks that it may face through its interconnections to Participants and Pledgees. As a designated systemically important financial market utility, or “SIFMU,” DTC occupies a unique position in the marketplace such that a failure or a disruption to DTC could increase the risk of significant liquidity problems spreading among financial institutions or markets and thereby threaten the stability of the financial system in the United States.[5] Given its designation as a SIFMU, DTC believes it is prudent to develop an enhanced endpoint security framework designed so that its SMART network or other connectivity is adequately protected against cyberattacks.

    Currently, DTC does not obtain any information regarding the security of a firm's systems or cybersecurity program prior to permitting that firm to connect either directly to the SMART network or to DTC through another means, such as through a third party service provider, service bureau, network, or the internet. Given DTC's critical role in the marketplace, DTC is proposing to address the risks that could be posed by these connections.

    Participants and Pledgees may currently be subject to regulations that are designed, in part, to enhance the safeguards used by these entities to protect themselves against cyberattacks.[6] In order to comply with such regulations, Participants, Pledgees and applicants would be required to follow standards established by national or international organizations focused on information security management, and would have already established protocols to allow their senior management to verify that they have sufficient cybersecurity programs in place to fulfill existing regulatory obligations. Other Participants and Pledgees have established and follow substantially similar protocols because of evolving expectations by regulators or by institutional customers as to the sufficiency of their cyber safeguards. DTC believes that it should require confirmation of the cybersecurity standards utilized by its Participants, Pledgees and applicants that connect to its network.

    The proposed Cybersecurity Confirmation would require Start Printed Page 58191Participants, Pledgees and applicants to represent that they have established adequate controls and security to help limit (1) cybersecurity risks to DTC and to the other Participants' and Pledgees' networks and (2) access by unauthorized third parties while the firm is connected to DTC either directly through the SMART network or through other connectivity such as a service provider, service bureau, network, or the internet.

    (iii) Proposed Rule Changes

    DTC is proposing to modify its Rules to (1) define “Cybersecurity Confirmation;” and (2) require that firms deliver a completed Cybersecurity Confirmation (a) as part of their initial application with DTC, and (b) on an ongoing basis, at least every two years. Each of these proposed rule changes is described in greater detail below.

    (1) Proposed Cybersecurity Confirmation

    DTC is proposing to adopt a definition of “Cybersecurity Confirmation.” Each Cybersecurity Confirmation would be required to be in writing on a form provided by DTC and signed by a designated senior executive of the submitting firm who is authorized to attest to these matters. Based on the form provided by DTC, each Cybersecurity Confirmation would contain representations regarding the submitting firm's cybersecurity program and framework. Such representations by the submitting firm would cover the two years prior to the date of the most recently provided Cybersecurity Confirmation.

    DTC is proposing to require that the following representations be included in the form of Cybersecurity Confirmation:

    First, the Cybersecurity Confirmation would include a representation that the submitting firm has defined and maintains a comprehensive cybersecurity program and framework that considers potential cyber threats that impact the organization and protects the confidentiality, integrity and availability requirements of its systems and information.

    Second, the Cybersecurity Confirmation would include a representation that the submitting firm has implemented and maintains a written enterprise cybersecurity policy or policies approved by the submitting firm's senior management or board of directors, and the organization's cybersecurity framework is in alignment with standard industry best practices and guidelines.[7]

    Third, the Cybersecurity Confirmation would include a representation that, if the submitting firm is using a third party service provider or service bureau(s) to connect or transact business or to manage the connection with DTC, the submitting firm has an appropriate program to (a) evaluate the cyber risks and impact of these third parties, and (b) review the third party assurance reports.

    Fourth, the Cybersecurity Confirmation would include a representation that the submitting firm's cybersecurity program and framework protect the segment of their system that connects to and/or interacts with DTC.

    Fifth, the Cybersecurity Confirmation would include a representation that the submitting firm has in place an established process to remediate cyber issues identified to fulfill the submitting firm's regulatory and/or statutory requirements.

    Sixth, the Cybersecurity Confirmation would include a representation that the submitting firm's cybersecurity program's and framework's risk processes are updated periodically based on a risk assessment or changes to technology, business, threat ecosystem, and/or regulatory environment.

    And, finally, the Cybersecurity Confirmation would include a representation that the review of the submitting firm's cybersecurity program and framework has been conducted by one of the following: (1) The submitting firm, if it has filed and maintains a current Certification of Compliance with the Superintendent of the New York State Department of Financial Services confirming compliance with its Cybersecurity Requirements for Financial Services Companies; [8] (2) a regulator who assesses the program against an industry cybersecurity framework or industry standard, including those that are listed on the form of Cybersecurity Confirmation and in an Important Notice that is issued by DTC from time to time; [9] (3) an independent external entity with cybersecurity domain expertise in relevant industry standards and practices, including those that are listed on the form of Cybersecurity Confirmation and in an Important Notice that is issued by DTC from time to time; [10] or (4) an independent internal audit function reporting directly to the submitting firm's board of directors or designated board of directors committee, such that the findings of that review are shared with these governance bodies.

    Together, the required representations are designed to provide DTC with evidence of each Participant's, Pledgee's or applicant's management of cybersecurity with respect to their connectivity to DTC. By requiring these representations from Participants, Pledgees and applicants the proposed Cybersecurity Confirmation would provide DTC with information that it could use to make decisions about risks or threats, perform additional monitoring, target potential vulnerabilities, and protect the DTC network.

    DTC is proposing to amend the Rules to include a definition of “Cybersecurity Confirmation,” as described above, in a new Section 11 of Rule 2 (Participants and Pledgees).

    (2) Initial and Ongoing Requirement

    DTC is proposing to require that a Cybersecurity Confirmation be submitted to DTC by any applicant, as part of their application materials, and at least every two years by all Participants and Pledgees. With respect Start Printed Page 58192to the requirement to deliver a Cybersecurity Confirmation at least every two years, DTC would provide all Participants and Pledgees with notice of the date on which such Cybersecurity Confirmations would be due no later than 180 calendar days prior to such due date.

    In order to implement these proposed changes, DTC would amend the Rules to include a new Section 11 of Rule 2 (Participants and Pledgees) to require that (1) applicants complete and deliver a Cybersecurity Confirmation as part of their application materials; and (2) each Participant and Pledgee complete and deliver a Cybersecurity Confirmation at least every two years, on a date that is set by DTC and following notice that is provided no later than 180 calendar days prior to such due date.

    (iv) Implementation Timeframe

    Subject to approval by the Commission, the proposed rule change would become effective immediately. The proposed requirement that applicants deliver a Cybersecurity Confirmation with their application materials would be implemented immediately and would apply to applications that have been submitted at that time but have not yet been approved or rejected. Following the effective date of the proposed rule change, DTC would provide Participants and Pledgees with notice of the due date of their Cybersecurity Confirmations, no later than 180 days prior to such due date, and would provide such notice at least every two years going forward.

    2. Statutory Basis

    DTC believes the proposed rule changes are consistent with the requirements of the Act and the rules and regulations thereunder applicable to a registered clearing agency. In particular, DTC believes that the proposed rule changes are consistent with Section 17A(b)(3)(F) of the Act,[11] and Rules 17Ad-22(e)(17)(i) and (e)(17)(ii), each promulgated under the Act,[12] for the reasons described below.

    Section 17A(b)(3)(F) of the Act requires that the rules of DTC be designed to, among other things, promote the prompt and accurate clearance and settlement of securities transactions and assure the safeguarding of securities and funds which are in the custody or control of the clearing agency or for which it is responsible.[13]

    As described above, the proposed requirement that Participants, Pledgees and applicants provide a Cybersecurity Confirmation regarding their cybersecurity program that includes the representations described above would provide DTC with evidence of each Participant's, Pledgee's or applicant's management of endpoint security with respect to the SMART network or other connectivity and would enhance the protection of DTC against cyberattacks. The proposed Cybersecurity Confirmation would provide DTC with information that it could use to make decisions about risks or threats, perform additional monitoring, target potential vulnerabilities, and protect the DTC network. The proposed Cybersecurity Confirmation would give DTC the ability to further identify its exposure and enable it to take steps to mitigate risks. These requirements would help reduce risk to DTC's network with respect to its communications with Participants and Pledgees and their submission of instructions and transactions to DTC by requiring all Participants and Pledgees connecting to DTC to have appropriate cybersecurity programs in place.

    Risks, threats and potential vulnerabilities could impact DTC's ability to clear and settle securities transactions, or to safeguard the securities and funds which are in its custody or control, or for which it is responsible. Therefore, by implementing a tool that would help to mitigate these risks, DTC believes the proposal would promote the prompt and accurate clearance and settlement of securities transactions and assure the safeguarding of securities and funds which are in the custody or control of the clearing agency or for which it is responsible, consistent with the requirements of Section 17A(b)(3)(F) of the Act.[14]

    Rule 17Ad-22(e)(17)(i) under the Act requires that each covered clearing agency establish, implement, maintain and enforce written policies and procedures reasonably designed to manage the covered clearing agency's operational risks by identifying the plausible sources of operational risk, both internal and external, and mitigating their impact through the use of appropriate systems, policies, procedures, and controls.[15] The proposed Cybersecurity Confirmation would reduce cybersecurity risks to DTC by requiring all Participants, Pledgees and applicants to confirm they have defined and maintain cybersecurity programs that meet standard industry best practices and guidelines. The proposed representations in the Cybersecurity Confirmations would help DTC to mitigate its exposure to cybersecurity risk and, thereby, decrease the operational risks to DTC that are presented by connections to DTC through the SMART network or otherwise. The proposed Cybersecurity Confirmations would identify to DTC potential sources of external operational risks and enable it to mitigate these risks and their possible impacts to DTC's operations. As a result, DTC believes the proposal is consistent with the requirements of Rule 17Ad-22(e)(17)(i) under the Act.[16]

    Rule 17Ad-22(e)(17)(ii) under the Act requires that each covered clearing agency establish, implement, maintain and enforce written policies and procedures reasonably designed to manage the covered clearing agency's operational risks by ensuring, in part, that systems have a high degree of security, resiliency, and operational reliability.[17] The proposed Cybersecurity Confirmation would enhance the security, resiliency, and operational reliability of the endpoint security with respect to the SMART network or other connectivity because, as noted above, by making the Cybersecurity Confirmation an application requirement and an ongoing membership requirement, DTC would be able to prevent the connection by any applicant, and take action against any Participant and Pledgee, that may pose an increased cyber risk to DTC by not having a defined and ongoing cybersecurity program that meets appropriate standards. Participants, Pledgees or applicants that are not in alignment with a recognized framework, guideline, or standard that DTC believes is adequate to guide and assess such organization's cybersecurity program may present increased risk to DTC. By enabling DTC to identify these risks, the proposed changes would allow DTC to more effectively secure its environment against potential vulnerabilities. DTC's controls are strengthened when DTC's Participants and Pledgees have similar technology risk management controls and programs within their computing environment. Control weaknesses within a Participant's or Pledgee's environment could allow for malicious or unauthorized usage of the link between DTC and the Participant or Pledgee. As a result, DTC believes the proposal would improve DTC's ability to ensure that its systems have a high degree of security, resiliency, and operational reliability, and, as such, is Start Printed Page 58193consistent with the requirements of Rule 17Ad-22(e)(17)(ii) under the Act.[18]

    (B) Clearing Agency's Statement on Burden on Competition

    DTC believes the proposed rule change could have an impact on competition. Specifically, DTC believes that the proposed rule change could burden competition because it would require Participants, Pledgees and applicants that do not already have cybersecurity programs that meet the standards set out in the Cybersecurity Confirmation to incur additional costs including, but not limited to, establishing a cybersecurity program and framework, engaging an internal audit function or appropriate third party to review that program and framework, and remediating any findings from such review. In addition, those Participants, Pledgees and applicants that do not connect directly to the SMART network, but connect through a third party service provider or service bureau would have the additional burden of evaluating the cyber risks and impact of these third parties and reviewing the third party's assurance reports.

    DTC believes the above described burden on competition that could be created by the proposed changes would be both necessary and appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act, as permitted by Section 17A(b)(3)(I) of the Act, for the reasons described below.[19]

    First, DTC believes the proposed rule change would be necessary in furtherance of the Act, specifically Section 17A(b)(3)(F) of the Act, because the Rules must be designed to promote the prompt and accurate clearance and settlement of securities transactions and assure the safeguarding of securities and funds which are in the custody or control of the clearing agency or for which it is responsible.[20] By requiring that applicants, Participants and Pledgees provide a Cybersecurity Confirmation, the proposed rule change would allow DTC to better understand, assess, and, therefore, mitigate the cyber risks that DTC could face through its connections to its Participants and Pledgees. As described above, these risks could impact DTC's ability to clear and settle securities transactions, or to safeguard the securities and funds which are in DTC's custody or control, or for which it is responsible. Implementing a tool as described above would help to mitigate these risks, and therefore DTC believes the proposal is necessary in furtherance of the requirements of Section 17A(b)(3)(F) of the Act.[21]

    The proposed changes are also necessary in furtherance of the purposes of Rules 17Ad-22(e)(17)(i) and (e)(17)(ii) under the Act.[22] The proposed Cybersecurity Confirmations would identify to DTC potential sources of external operational risks and allow it to establish appropriate controls that would mitigate these risks and their possible impacts to DTC's operations. The proposed changes would also improve DTC's ability to ensure that its systems have a high degree of security, by enabling DTC to identify the cybersecurity risks that may be presented to it by Participants and Pledgees that connect to DTC.

    Second, DTC believes that the proposed rule change would be appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. The proposed rule change would apply equally to all Participants, Pledgees and applicants. As described above, DTC believes Participants and Pledgees may already be subject to one or more regulatory requirements that include the implementation of a cybersecurity program, and these firms would already follow a widely recognized framework, guideline, or standard to guide and assess their organization's cybersecurity program to comply with these regulations. Therefore, DTC believes any burden that may be imposed by the proposed rule change would be appropriate.

    Further, while the proposed Cybersecurity Confirmation would identify certain standards and guidelines that would be appropriate, DTC would consider requests by applicants, Participants and Pledgees to allow other standards in accepting a Cybersecurity Confirmation. Additionally, the proposed Cybersecurity Confirmation would provide differing options to conduct the review of the applicant's, Participant's or Pledgee's cybersecurity program. As such, DTC has endeavored to design the Cybersecurity Confirmation in a way that is reasonable and does not require one approach for meeting its requirements.

    Finally, DTC is proposing to provide Participants and Pledgees with a minimum of 180 calendar days' notice before the deadline for providing a Cybersecurity Confirmation. This notice would allow Participants and Pledgees to address any impact this change may have on their business. Applicants to be Participants or Pledgees would be required to provide the Cybersecurity Confirmation as part of their application materials upon the effective date of this proposed rule change. This implementation schedule is designed to be fair and not disproportionately impact any Participants or Pledgees more than others. The proposal is designed to provide all impacted Participants and Pledgees with time to review their cybersecurity programs with respect to the required representations, and identify, if necessary, internal or third party cybersecurity reviewers.

    For the reasons described above, DTC believes any burden on competition that may result from the proposed rule change would be both necessary and appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act, as permitted by Section 17A(b)(3)(I) of the Act.[23]

    (C) Clearing Agency's Statement on Comments on the Proposed Rule Change Received From Members, Participants, or Others
