Compliance into the Weeds is the only weekly podcast which takes a deep dive into a compliance related topic, literally going into the weeds to more fully explore a subject. In this episode, Matt Kelly and I go into the weeds to explore the recent changes at the PCAOB made by SEC Chairman Jay Clayton.
Some of the highlights include:
- Why were the changes announced in a manner to hide them?
- Why were they such unusual personnel moves?
- Why would the SEC put someone on the PCAOB with no discernible qualifications for the role?
- Is the goal of Jay Clayton to do away with SOX 404 protection for investors?
- Does going public under SOX mandate investor protection?
- What else will Clayton pull to ram through his changes at the PCAOB and SEC?
- Why is WeWork such a power example right now?
