Ceresney to apply ‘broken windows’ to SEC enforcement | New York Post

Andrew Ceresney, the SEC’s head of enforcement, on Wednesday charged 34 people and companies a total of $2.6 million for generally low-level violations — like failing to timely file stock ownership forms.

The actions are the latest in the agency’s “broken windows” approach to policing the markets — that is, enforcing even the most basic regulations in hopes of keeping Wall Street from breaking the big ones.
