    Event Synopsis:
    Compared to 84 actions in 2015 and prior years averaging between 40 and 50 cases annually, 2016 saw a record high of 92 actions brought by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) against public companies. Digging deeper on some of these cases shows SEC's focus on significant issues including accounting and disclosure violations. This trend toward more active and aggressive enforcement emphasizes the importance of knowledgeable and strong legal and accounting teams within public companies. It is of utmost importance that the team understand how to deal with regulators and manage internal procedures to simultaneously avoid and prepare for investigations.

    In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of key thought leaders and professionals organized by The Knowledge Group will discuss the significant issues surrounding the heightened SEC enforcement actions, particularly in the areas of accounting and financial disclosure fraud. They will do a brief review of recent enforcement trends and developments and its impact on corporate compliance. Speakers will also offer best practices in developing robust and effective internal controls to avoid errors and efficiently navigate issues and investigations.

    Key topics include:
    • Recent SEC Enforcement Trends
    • The Financial Reporting and Audit (FRAud) Group
    • The Role of Whistleblowers in Financial and Accounting Fraud Cases
    • Non-Fraud Claims, Internal Controls, and Individual Liability
    • Disclosure Reform Efforts
    • Effective Corporate Compliance
