The word is out—the SEC has made good on its promise to pay millions of dollars in awards to those who come forward with evidence of securities law violations and employees are taking notice. For the fourth consecutive year, 2015 saw the number of tips flowing into the SEC Office of the Whistleblower reach a record high, including a new high for complaints of FCPA violations. Indeed, SEC FCPA Unit Chief Kara Brockmeyer recently described Dodd-Frank’s whistleblower incentive provisions as a “game-changer” for FCPA enforcement. Meanwhile, the SEC’s Division of Enforcement brought an unprecedented enforcement action to discourage what it views as overly restrictive employee confidentiality agreements. And federal courts across the nation continue to reach disparate conclusions concerning the scope of Dodd-Frank’s whistleblower retaliation provisions. These trends, coupled with dynamic developments in FCPA enforcement, provide the perfect storm for keeping in-house counsel and compliance professionals up at night.
Featuring an experienced panel of plaintiff- and defense-side whistleblower and anti-corruption practitioners, including counsel to the whistleblower who received the largest award in Dodd-Frank’s history, this webcast will detail Dodd-Frank’s statutory and regulatory framework, discuss its early and recent interpretations by the SEC Office of the Whistleblower and federal courts, analyze the statute’s intersection with the FCPA, and provide the participant with practical tips for navigating the minefield of whistleblower complaints.
At Dodd-Frank’s second anniversary milestone and four years after the onset of the financial crisis, recovery is far from complete.
In this complimentary webinar, Protiviti’s Managing Director Carol Beaumier and Morrison & Foerster’s partner Charles Horn will discuss the rule making progress and provide a view into key upcoming decisions that will further impact financial services organizations.
We are in a brave new world of whistleblower regulation and litigation. Now four years after the passage of Dodd-Frank, the SEC Office of the Whistleblower is making an increasing number of bounty awards – including a recent record-breaking $30 million award – and federal courts across the country are defining and redefining the statute’s complex contours. Companies, meanwhile, continue to field the flood of hotline complaints in an effort to sift the chaff from tomorrow morning’s front-page expose. These trends, coupled with the continuing robust pace of FCPA enforcement, provide the perfect storm for keeping in-house counsel and compliance professionals up at night.

Over four years have passed since enactment of the Dodd-Frank Act in the US. Most of the significant regulations required to implement the mandate of the Act have been finalized. But the devil is in the details….
Implementation of many of the final rules is only just beginning. During this webcast, the speakers will review the principal actions taken by the banking agencies and other US regulators during 2014, with a special focus on those measures having greatest impact on non-US banks doing business in the country.
We also will focus on the thorniest implementation questions and highlight the regulations that must still be finalized. The speakers will address:
•The Volcker Rule and related implementation questions,
•Treatment of covered funds under the Volcker Rule,
•The final capital rules for US banks and the intermediate holding company framework for foreign banks,
•The cross-border derivatives rules,
•The regulation of mortgage loan origination and securitisation, and

The Federal Reserve recently issued proposed rules under §§ 165 and 166 of the Dodd- Frank Act that would establish enhanced prudential standards for certain foreign banking organization’s branches in the United States. The proposed rules will likely require fundamental changes in the way that many foreign banks do business in the U.S., including new requirements that many foreign banks structure their U.S. operations through U.S. intermediate holding companies and meet enhanced capital and liquidity standards, detailed corporate governance, risk management mandates, and single counterparty credit limits.

The role of the Audit Committee has gained substantial influence and importance in light of the global financial crisis with greater scrutiny and demands for accountability and transparency of US institutions. With the passage of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, the Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010, and increased regulation and enforcement by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the challenge of the Audit Committee to recognize and balance the mounting internal and external pressures for effective financial governance of institutions has never been greater.
