Today US regulators proposed 'Enhanced Cyber Risk Management Standards' to certain entities with total consolidated assets of $50 billion or more on an enterprise-wide basis.

Proposed standards address five categories of a comprehensive cyber risk management program

1. Cyber risk governance

2. Cyber risk management

3. Internal dependency management

4. External dependency management

5. Incident response, cyber resilience and situational awareness.

It is a welcome step amd would spur the other Country's regulators to frame the cyber security guidelines at the earliest.
