Today, a terrific panel of top SEC regulators, lawyers and consultants joined me for a webcast on "The SEC's New Whistleblower Program: What It Means for Companies and How to Respond." The panel included:
- Scott Friestad, Associate Director, SEC's Division of Enforcement
- Brad Bondi, Partner, Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP (former counsel to SEC Commissioners Paul Atkins and Troy Paredes and former Deputy General Counsel of the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission)
- Martin Biegelman, Director, Navigant Consulting, Inc. (former Director of Financial Integrity at Microsoft)
- Paul Atkins, partner, Sphere Consulting (former SEC Commissioner) will serve as moderator.
The panel provided great insights on the way companies and financial institution should manage and respond to whistleblowers, conduct internal investigations, and interact with the SEC now that the SEC's new whistleblower rules are imminent. You can view the webcast below.
