Securities Enforcement Forum 2015: Whistle-blower Program

The SEC received almost 4,000 tips through its whistle-blower program in fiscal 2015, a 30 percent increase compared with 2011, the program's first year. The SEC is also working to ensure companies are complying with anti-retaliation and anti-stifling provisions of the whistle-blower program, Andrew Ceresney, director of SEC's enforcement division, says.
