The U.S. Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) continues its scrutiny on cryptocurrencies. In its January 7 announcement, SEC’s Office of Enforcement Inspections and Examinations (OCIE) added fintech, including digital assets, to its annual priority list in the coming fiscal year. In line with this, the division will continue to prioritize the analysis of certain activities and products which are believed to pose risks to investors as well as the reputation of the U.S. capital markets. Examinations of these focus areas are designed to support the SEC’s mission to protect investors, promote capital formation, and keep markets fair and effective.

In this LIVE Webcast, a seasoned panel of thought leaders and professionals brought together by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an in-depth analysis of the recent developments in SEC’s heightened enforcement on cryptocurrencies. Speakers will also present the best practices to stay compliant and avoid potential risks and pitfalls.

Key topics include:
• SEC’s Enforcement on Cryptocurrency: Trends, Developments, and Changes
• Significant Implications of OCIE’s Examination Priorities
• Risks and Challenges
• Best Practices
• Outlook
