Cybersecurity Rule: Comment Period Math
When the SEC issued its cybersecurity disclosure rule proposals earlier this month, it said that the comment period would expire 60 days following publication of the proposing release on the SEC’s website or 30 days following publication of the proposing release in the Federal Register, whichever period is longer. I guess I’m not surprised that an MIT professor turned SEC Chair would make us do math – but seriously, why did it have to be word problems?
Anyway, the proposal was published in the Federal Register on March 23rd, which means by my calculations – and the statement in the online version of the Federal Register – that the comment period will end on May 9th.
