Event summary

More than $1 billion has now been awarded under the SEC's whistleblower program – and the Commission continues to announce record-setting awards. Companies need to get ahead of the new normal in light of the possibility that the SEC's current penalty posture signals a willingness to grant more awards and that recent data and high-profile incidents show employees are more willing to submit tips. Among other topics, this program, hosted by TheCorporateCounsel.net, will cover: 

  • Basics of whistleblower policies
  • Whistleblower rule amendments
  • Latest trends from the SEC
  • Cultivating a compliant corporate culture
  • Nuts & bolts of handling whistleblower complaints
  • Whistleblower complaint documentation
  • Communication with the Board
  • Whistleblowers & ESG


  • Zachary Hafer – Partner, Cooley
  • Susan Muck – Partner, WilmerHale
  • Harris Mufson – Partner, Gibson Dunn
