Ceresney Praises SEC’s Division of Enforcement Accomplishments
As the keynote speaker at Compliance Week 2014, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) official Andrew Ceresney reflected on the Division of Enforcement’s (“the Division”) achievements from the past year. Ceresney, the Director of the SEC’s Division of Enforcement, highlighted successes including:
- Creating specialized units within the Division to concentrate on areas of significant concern;
- Ensuring fair trading and equal information access within the securities markets;
- Creating task forces within the Division to focus on areas outside of the ones covered by specialized units; and
- A new method to settlements that creates the effective settlement of cases while fulfilling accountability needs and accepting responsibility in select cases.
