Teresa Goody Guillén and Joanna Wasick Quoted in Law360 Article About Crypto Regulation Guidelines

News / July 25, 2022

Goody Guillén tells Law360, "I think the industry would be more receptive to a principle-based approach to cybersecurity guidance as opposed to prescriptive requirements and a one-size-fits-all approach.” Wasick says the SEC and CFTC guidance, as proposed, wouldn’t be binding, but it would likely be used as a reference point for “private litigants arguing that an entity in the crypto space did or did not take proper steps to maintain cybersecurity.”
