    The securities law landscape continues to evolve as new regulatory developments emerge. Recently, under the direction of its new Chair, the Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) has been messaging the priorities of its enforcement program, including renewed focus across the agency related to climate change disclosures, cybersecurity, and financial innovation. The SEC staff has also messaged through its examination priorities that it will focus on recently established rules and standards of conduct for registered investment advisers (RIAs) and broker-dealers. Although the new administration is still working through several pandemic-related economic disruptions, a more aggressive enforcement posture is widely expected.
