Securities and Exchange Commission Unanimously Approves Regulation A+ Rules under JOBS Acts Title IV
Washington D.C (PRWEB) March 26, 2015
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) unanimously adopted final rules yesterday (March 25, 2015) to expand Regulation A, an existing securities registration exemption, under Title IV of the JOBS Act, often referred to as Regulation A+. The expansion of Regulation A will expand capital markets for small public securities offerings. The final rules, which will become effective in the coming months, will preempt state Blue Sky laws for certain offers under Regulation A.
"The Crowdfund Intermediary Regulatory Advocates praises the Commission for moving forward securities rules for small businesses and investors, including unaccredited ones, which will further serve as a catalyst to capital formation and economic stimulus, said Kim Wales, founder and CEO of Wales Capital and CFIRA executive committee board member. This is the first real step to true securities-based crowdfunding as intended by the JOBS Act."
The regulations divide Regulation A into Tier 1 and Tier 2:
Tier 1 - requires SEC and state reviews and payment of state filing fees; companies can raise up to $ 20 million per year; open to unaccredited investors, with no audit required.
Tier 2 - requires SEC review but no state review, companies can raise up to $ 50 million per year, also open to unaccredited investors (limited to the greater of 10 percent of income or net worth), annual issuer audit is required, and must use a registered transfer agent.
Both tiers are open to unaccredited investors and can be used by existing and new businesses. The SEC is conditionally exempting companies that use Regulation A from having to become fully registered with the SEC by reason of having triggered the number-of-shareholders threshold. Issuers will have the ability to generally solicit and advertise to investors using Regulation A+ for both Tiers 1 and 2.
Reg A+ should be seen as the first real securities-based crowdfunding as this class of securities can be bought by anyone, not just accredited investors, said D.J. Paul, co-chair of CFIRA and a member of the SEC Advisory Committee on Small and Emerging Companies. While Title III rules are yet to be finalized, this ruling is a huge step in that direction as it allows working- and middle-class people to buy stock in emerging companies, which was previously only available to the wealthy. It also allows small- and mid-sized companies, which employ over 80 percent of Americans, to access working capital in a way that was previously only available to large companies raising hundreds of millions of dollars through traditional IPOs.
This is fantastic news for small businesses, which are the jobs engine of our economy. Regulation A+ and the small public markets it creates will improve capital formation that will create new wealth and help businesses across the country grow and expand, said Chris Tyrrell, CEO of Offerboard Group and chair of CFIRA.
The Crowdfund Intermediary Regulatory Advocates, or CFIRA, was established following the signing of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act. CFIRA is an organization formed by the crowdfunding industrys leading platforms and experts. The group works with the Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC), the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), and other affected governmental and quasi-governmental entities to help establish industry standards and best practices.

New York, NY (PRWEB) April 25, 2015
By definition, a CIOs responsibility is to support the computer systems, technology and data for the enterprise relying on their judgement and expertise to keep digital assets and environments secure and running smoothly. But according to an article published in National Mortgage News on April 22nd, 2015, CIOs can many times actually be doing a disservice to their responsibilities by focusing too heavily on making sure all the is are dotted and ts are crossed when it comes to company policy and industry best practices, and not enough focus on getting an outsiders perspective regularly.
Best practices and sound policies are of course instrumental to effective cyber security, but they are just playbooks, playbooks that many hackers know inside and out as well, from common defense tactics to widely used emergency response practices. What cyber security professionals from outside the organization bring to the table is a fresh look from a real-world perspective, and thats not just instrumental, its crucial.
Social engineering, beating the human element.
Joe Caruso, founder and CEO/CTO of Global Digital Forensics (GDF), a premier national provider of cyber security solutions headquartered in New York City, has helped businesses of all sizes navigate the ever evolving cyber threat landscape since the infancy of the Internet, and if there is one thing he has seen proven time and time again, its that, cyber security does not come in a one-size-fits-all solution, and thats a problem when security is looked at through a purely academic lens. Trust me, the real world of cyber threats is far more brutal than what youll learn about in the halls of academia, and when the stability and success of an entire organization rests in the balance, the stakes are just too high to not approach the problem from a real-world cyber attackers point of view. If there are six words that need to get pounded into the heads of CIOs responsible for cyber security as often as possible, they are social engineering, social engineering, and social engineering. Thats how even goliaths that have every resource and security technology available to them still manage to get bested and victimized, from Target, to Sony, to Anthem and beyond.
First assess, then test.
Comprehensive cyber threat assessments and penetration tests by Global Digital Forensics are designed to look at the entirety of the big cyber-security picture. On the cyber threat assessment side, GDF takes a look at all those is and ts CIOs love so much, by reviewing and understanding existing policies, procedures and enforcement, looking at any specific regulatory compliance issues a client may face in their particular industry, mapping the digital architecture and addressing the whole scope of it, including the burgeoning problems related to the increasing popularity of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policies, understanding the intricacies of the daily data flow, making sure emergency response plans are well designed to effective and fast, and helping clients recognize and remediate any other issues that may be found.
The right way to really test cyber security is from a hackers perspective.
On the penetration testing side, GDF assumes the role of a real-world attacker, launching simulated cyber attacks just like the ones they would use. The tests get customized to a clients unique situation, which can include everything from realistic and advanced spear phishing campaigns, to devious and clever ways weve devised to get a GDF-infected USB stick inserted into a target network, and much more. We take great pride in the fact that, so far, we have a 100% success rate when it comes to infiltrating a targeted network. And there is nothing more effective than actually showing a CIO, an executive, a manager, or even an employee that we did get by them, heres how and heres how to fix it. Its also not unusual for us to then get retained to give cyber security awareness seminars for the entire organization afterward, and I can tell you that all eyes are forward and paying attention when you successfully phished 60-70-80% or more of the company, or can point out how many were fooled into inserting one of our infected USB sticks, effectively compromising the network. And if you can raise that awareness and make it stick, you already won more than half to the battle when it comes beating cyber attacks at the source, Caruso says. Those are just some of the tricks in our bag, but like todays hackers, theres always more things we can dig out of our arsenal to get the job done right for any unique situation and identify any weak links in the chain.
It just takes one misstep for a disaster to unfold.
If you plug the holes which can lead to that initial intrusion that hackers use as the springboard to start moving sideways across the network, make everyone aware of their responsibilities and understand the ramifications even a single lapse in judgment can have and show them how to avoid being an unknowing accomplice to a cyber attacker, for both businesses and critical infrastructure alike, everyone will be safer in the long run, says Caruso, including whomever is filling that monumentally important position of Chief Information Officer for an organization in todays dangerous digital world.
