Over the past decade, the SEC’s whistleblower program has played a critical role in the Division of Enforcement’s ability to effectively detect wrongdoing, protect investors and the marketplace, and bring violators to justice. Since issuing its first award in 2012, the SEC has awarded more than $1.3 billion to 278 individuals. With the help of these whistleblowers, the SEC brought enforcement actions ordering monetary sanctions of approximately $5 billion. Fiscal year 2021, in particular, was a record-breaking year, with the SEC awarding a total of $564 million to 108 whistleblowers.
