A quiet revolution in securities enforcement is underway-with its anonymous reporting, employment protections and monetary awards-the SEC Whistleblower Program and the other whistleblower provisions in the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act have inspired whistleblowers from all walks of life to break their silence and report a wide variety of significant violations and will have a profound impact on the global marketplace.
