Ten Things to Improve Your Next Internal Investigation

Investigators share experiences


Since the enactment of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer protection Act of 2010, which provides substantial whistleblower incentives, the volume of “high-value” tips to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has increased from about two dozen each year to one or two each day, according to a February 11, 2011 speech by Tom Sporkin, chief of the SEC’s Office of Market Intelligence.
