Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)

On Wednesday, the SEC Chairman released a Statement on Cybersecurity which included the disclosure of a 2016 intrusion into the Commission's EDGAR test filing system. The statement indicates that the Commission recently learned that those responsible for the intrusion gained unauthorized access to nonpublic information that could have facilitated illicit gain through trading. However, at this time, it is believed the intrusion "did not result in unauthorized access to personally identifiable information, jeopardize the operations of the Commission, or result in systemic risk." An investigation into the incident and its impact is ongoing. For more information, refer to the SEC's press release.
