After much hand-wringing, the SEC adopted new whistleblower rules as required by Dodd-Frank. Many companies have begun to make changes to their whistleblower policies and procedures in response to the new rules. This panel - which includes the Chief of the SEC's new Office of the Whistleblower - will explore the latest developments in what companies are doing - and the issues that companies should consider when adopting changes to their policies and procedures.

Join these experts:
  • Sean McKessy, Chief, SEC's Office of the Whistleblower, Division of Enforcement
  • David Becker, Partner, Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP; former SEC General Counsel
  • Allegra Lawrence-Hardy, Partner, Sutherland Asbill & Brennan LLP
  • Steve Pearlman, Partner, Seyfarth Shaw LLP
  • Bob Bittman, Counsel, White & Case LLP

Among the topics of this program are:

  • Are companies revising their whistleblower policies and procedures? Their code of ethics? If so, how?
  • How are companies incentivizing employees to report internally?
  • How does the SEC's Office of the Whistleblower work?
  • How are boards overseeing the implementation of the new whistleblower rules?
