[IT] SEC launches a hiring spree to fight cryptocurrency fraud



목록 보기

The Securities and Exchange Commission is vastly expanding its fight against cryptocurrency fraud by hiring more than a dozen new employees to combat cybercrime, the agency said Tuesday.

The additional 20 positions will result in almost a doubling in size of the agency's Cyber Unit, which is also being renamed the Crypto Assets and Cyber Unit to reflect the group's growing mission, the SEC said in a release. The Cyber Unit was first founded within the SEC's enforcement division in 2017.

"By nearly doubling the size of this key unit, the SEC will be better equipped to police wrongdoing in the crypto markets while continuing to identify disclosure and controls issues with respect to cybersecurity," SEC Chair Gary Gensler said in a statement.

In addition to policing cryptocurrency exchanges and coin offerings, the SEC will also be monitoring NFTs, decentralized finance platforms and stablecoins, the release said.

The list of open positions will include opportunities for fraud analysts, trial and investigative attorneys and supervisors, the SEC said.

It's pretty upsetting that many people are getting into the crypto industry just to scam others. It has a huge negative effect on trust in the crypto industry.

That's true, but I can say that the number of reliable projects in this industry is increasing, and in general, more people over time understand the value of crypto and get into that field. Moreover, with platforms like https://hexn.io, it's not a problem to increase your crypto savings, and I believe that over time, it's going to get even more widespread.
