Excerpt from SEC’s Dodd-Frank Whistleblower Program Report shows best practices make for an effective compliance and ethics program:

The Securities and Exchange Commission’s 2013 Annual Report To Congress On The Dodd-Frank Whistleblower Program provides the second complete year of data on the activities of the Office of the Whistleblower (“OWB”) since the office’s establishment in 2011. The SEC distributed $14,831,965.64 in award payments during fiscal year 2013, including $14 million to one whistleblower for information that led to an enforcement action that recovered substantial investor funds less than six months after the SEC received the information.
