Achievements, Challenges and Change: A Look at the Past, Present and Future of the SEC Whistleblower Program

NEW YORK (August 7, 2014) – Four years ago, the President signed into law the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, the most sweeping financial reform effort since the Great Depression. One of Dodd-Frank's key charges was the creation of a whistleblower program that offered anonymous reporting, employment protections and significant monetary incentives to eligible SEC whistleblowers.

Is the program working? Are whistleblowers strengthening corporate compliance programs? Will the program be a game-changer in securities enforcement?  What makes corporate whistleblowers successful?

We invite you to read our Year in Review, a report that examines the major developments related to the SEC Whistleblower Program over the past 12 months and how these developments are likely to impact the future of corporate whistleblowing and how responsible organizations do business.
