Last month, the Securities and Exchange Commission filed a complaint in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York against a UK resident, Idris Mustapha, for allegedly hacking into brokerage accounts of U.S. customers and making unauthorized stock trades from the other investors’ accounts. In its statement announcing the case, the SEC said that “[w]e will swiftly track down hackers who prey on investors ... no matter where they are operating from and no matter how sophisticated their technology.” The complaint serves as another sign of the SEC’s increasingly active role in policing cybersecurity.

"I find the Lexology service invaluable.
In common with many in-house lawyers, I have limited access to (and a limited budget for) resources and rely on receiving know-how from friends and contacts in private practice. Lexology is great as it provides a daily email with the headlines in all the areas of law that I am interested in (which are all relevant to me, as I was able to choose which areas I was interested in at registration), with links to articles from a wide variety of sources.
I tend to scroll through the daily email when I am having my lunch, reading the headlines and descriptions of the articles, and click on any items that are of interest to me - that way, I feel like I am kept 'in the loop' with legal developments.
In addition to the daily email, I find the articles themselves very helpful - they set out the legal principle but most importantly, they 'boil it down' to the practical implications. When I am doing legal research, I also find the archive search function very helpful.
I have recommended the service to quite a few friends who have also found it very helpful."
