Effective May 28, 2024 in accordance with the industry-led shortened settlement cycle from two business days (T+2) to one business day (T+1), FINRA will implement its changes for equity trade reporting.

Tune in to this encore episode of the FINRA Unscripted podcast, where we revisit the key takeaways from Regulatory Notice 22-23 (FINRA Provides Guidance on Succession Planning), including why succession planning helps customers and registered representatives plan for orderly transitions of customer accounts, but can even play a role in in minimizing firms’ operational and other risks. Listen to the podcast.


FINRA Cybersecurity Advisory on Threat Actor Scattered Spider – As a reminder, FINRA recently highlighted a joint Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Cybersecurity Advisory issued in response to recent activity by the threat actor Scattered Spider. The Advisory notes the social engineering tactics leveraged by Scattered Spider, and effective practices firms may consider to reduce the likelihood and impact of a cyberattack by this threat actor. Questions related to this Alert or other cybersecurity-related topics can be emailed to the CAU.
