In its announcement, the SEC also pointed to steps it has taken over the last few years to bring its computer system and technological capabilities up to date.
It has created a national standardized collection and storage system for SEC inspections and examinations, created a centralized database for tips and complaints, installed an automated work-flow system to track enforcement actions, and refurbished its financial management system.
The SEC has been criticized for its lack of oversight, particularly in the Bernard Madoff case. Not enough staff, staff not sufficiently trained, and outdated technology systems were among the criticisms.
