On September 28, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) announced a $1.8 million whistleblower award, issued to “a company outsider, who expeditiously reported significant information to the Commission about ongoing securities law violations.” The award is the 100th whistleblower award granted in the history of the SEC Whistleblower Program.

“Today’s award demonstrates the success of the program and the important role that company outsiders can play in halting ongoing violations,” said Jane Norberg, Chief of the SEC’s Office of the Whistleblower. “While many of our whistleblowers have been insiders, the agency also receives critical intelligence from company outsiders, like today’s whistleblower, whose swift reporting alerted staff to the violations that resulted in the success of this enforcement action.”
