Whistleblowers have increasingly played a role in helping securities and derivatives regulators identify and respond to violations. Encouraging whistleblowers is occurring on both the federal and state level and is the new normal. On this panel, practitioners and top regulators from the SEC, CFTC and NASAA will discuss the impact of recent whistleblower developments such as the implementation of the SEC's amended whistleblower rules, the expanding CFTC whistleblower program and the model whistleblower law for states developed by the North American Securities Administrator Association.
