SEC Enforcement Stats for FY 2023
the SEC said it received 18,000 whistleblower tips. That's the agency's highest number on record, representing a 50% increase over the tips received in the previous record-setting fiscal year of 2022. The tip increase came the same year that the SEC announced that it had delivered a whopping $279 million award to an anonymous tipster who helped the federal government secure a $1 billion foreign bribery award against Stockholm-based telecom giant Ericsson.
