SEC’s Dodd-Frank Whistleblower Program continued to break records in FY 2022. The Office of the Whistleblower (“OWB”) received over 12,300 whistleblower tips, the highest in any year since the SEC established the whistleblower program in 2011, from all over the world and the United States. The SEC issued awards totaling over $229 million to over 100 whistleblowers in FY 2022, closely following the prior year’s record-high numbers. FY 2022 also saw over 760 enforcement actions brought by the SEC, through which the SEC sought the highest amount of monetary penalties in several years. Together with uncertainties in the markets and complex regulatory environments, these trends create the perfect storm for keeping in-house counsel and compliance professionals up at night.
