Avoiding Insider Trading Training
Insider trading is a serious crime with serious consequences for individuals and companies. Because insider trading undermines the public confidence in the securities market, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) makes detecting and prosecuting insider trading violations a priority. Both small and large transactions can result in SEC investigations and costly lawsuits. Further, an “insider” doesn’t have to be a senior executive. There are many examples of charges and penalties against employees at all levels, friends, family members, business associates and others who make trades based on material, nonpublic information (MNPI).
Training employees on their responsibilities to prevent insider trading is an important step in complying with insider trading laws and reducing the risk of insider trading violations.
