Education and Compliance Programs



During its December 6 and 7 meeting, the FINRA Board of Governors approved two rulemaking items, approved FINRA’s 2024 budget, appointed new members to the SFAC and NAC, and previewed the 2024 FINRA Annual Regulatory Oversight Report, scheduled to publish in January.


FINRA’s Cyber and Analytics Unit (CAU) would like to remind member firms to prepare for cyber threats and attacks that may occur around the holidays. Member firms and their vendors should consider reviewing and validating their Written Supervisory Procedures (WSPs), continuing to educate their employees with respect to cybersecurity and effective practices, and testing incident response plans (IRPs) to prepare for, prevent, or recover from an incident.

FINRA’s CAU is also highlighting a recent Okta data breach that impacts Okta customer support system users. Firms should determine whether they or their vendors utilize Okta and evaluate their exposure.

On December 8, 2023, the SEC staff issued additional FAQs related to Form CRS. Visit the SEC website for details.

Regulatory Contacts

Firms wishing to change the name or email address of their executive representative or designated assistant should do so through the FINRA Contact System (FCS). See for further information. Requests from executive representatives to be removed from this email notification list cannot be honored.
