First, we sympathize with everyone suffering job loss and economic privation these days, as this week’s unemployment numbers demonstrate so painfully. That said, the Compliance Jobs Report endures. We have several new hires and promotions to note; the perfect job opening for someone who wants to get away from it all; and our Meme of…

whistleblower

Some compliance professional out there just received a $450,000 whistleblower award from the Securities and Exchange Commission — apparently after that person took his or her concerns to management, was ignored, and then brought those concerns to the SEC instead.  The SEC announced the award on Monday.

conferences

Wednesday was a grim one for the compliance and audit communities: at least seven industry events were canceled, postponed, or scaled back dramatically, as coronavirus continues to thwart the camaraderie and exchange of ideas that have been the hallmarks of this profession for so long. Here is the latest list that I’ve been able to…

Another day, another gumdrop of guidance from financial regulators that’s worth reading for the whole compliance community. This time it’s FINRA, which published a bulletin Monday reminding broker-dealer firms about how to manage pandemic risk. FINRA has Rule 4370 for broker-dealers, which requires them to draft and maintain a business continuity plan. That rule doesn’t…
