The focus of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Historical Society’s inaugural “Fireside Chat” for 2006 is online fraud and the use of the Internet to perpetrate insider trading, market manipulations, and other securities violations. The free, one-hour, program will be broadcast live and online between 3:00 and 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time, on Tuesday, March 28, 2006, at www.sechistorical.org.
Thousands of executives with financial reporting responsibilities use the Comperio on-line library to access the type of information and interpretive guidance PricewaterhouseCoopers' own professional audit staff use around the world. Key content areas include guidance from the FASB, EITF, PCAOB, SEC, and others as well as PwC's interpretive guidance. Get more information and sign up for a complimentary 30-day trial.
John Reed Stark, Chief of the Office of Internet Enforcement at the SEC, will discuss online fraud with Professor Theresa A. Gabaldon, Professor of Law and Carville Dickinson Benson Research Professor of Law at the George Washington University Law School. Stark was appointed to direct the Internet Office, which is part of the SEC’s Division of Enforcement, in 1995. The Division of Enforcement investigates and prosecutes securities violations, specializing in those that involve technology.
Questions may be submitted for the Online Fraud Fireside Chat and should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 24.
