Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) August 18, 2011
On August 19, 2011, Douglas Y. Park, a Silicon Valley corporate governance consultant, attorney and owner of DYP Advisors, will present the webinar, “The SEC’s New Whistleblower Rules: Implications for your Company’s Compliance and Fraud Program.” The program begins at 10:00 am PST and runs for 75 minutes. This is one in a series of educational webinars that Mr. Park presents on corporate governance and compliance.
As part of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street and Financial Reform Act of 2010, the Security and Exchange Commission's new whistleblower rules went into effect on August 12, 2011. With new monetary incentives and enhanced protection for whistleblowers, the new rules affect how employees and report alleged corporate malfeasance both internally and externally. Board members, general counsel, compliance and ethics professionals, internal auditors, and risk managers are keeping a close eye on this issue.
"Board members and compliance professionals must keep up with the latest trends in corporate governance to do their jobs effectively," explains Mr. Park.
Compliance Online, a leading provider of governance, risk, and compliance education based in Palo Alto, California, will host the webinar. For further information, including registration options, please visit the webinar home page.
Mr. Park draws upon his experience as an award-winning former faculty member at the highly ranked School of Business and Management, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. Mr. Park now teaches business courses through the Stanford University Continuing Studies Program. Several publications have cited Mr. Park on corporate governance issues, including Time.com, TheWallStreetJournal.com, Agenda, a Financial Times service for corporate directors, Boardmember.com, and Boardroom Insider.
