Webinar: Tracking the SEC's New Agenda – Hot Topics in Securities Regulation, Accounting and Enforcement

Events / Tuesday, July 13, 2021

PwC and BakerHostetler hosted a complimentary webinar highlighting the SEC’s new agenda for securities regulation, accounting and enforcement. While the pandemic may have slowed down many aspects of the economy, the SEC contends that it has not slowed enforcement efforts and rapidly evolving corporate disclosure obligations.

This concise and timely briefing for senior executives, in-house counsel and accounting officers focused on the Biden Administration’s overhaul of the SEC, addressing:

  • the new voluntary information request initiative to public companies
  • a planned crackdown on insider trading by senior officers
  • cryptocurrency and non-fungible tokens (NFTs)
  • special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs)
  • ESG and climate change disclosure regime

Our panelists included former SEC staff and accounting and forensic experts who addressed what companies need to consider when making disclosures related to corruption, computer intrusion and ESG issues, and which enforcement trends and securities regulations the administration is likely to focus on this year. Speakers included:

  • John J. Carney, BakerHostetler and former SEC Division of Enforcement and DOJ Securities Chief
  • Teresa Goody Guillén, BakerHostetler and former SEC Office of the General Counsel
  • Sandra Parrado, Partner in PwC’s Cyber, Risk & Regulatory Consulting practice
