Welcome back to the office for the few of you who decided not to extend your holiday weekend. So what’s in the news for today?

ezgif.com-resize (3)Dodd-Frank is back, this time regarding complaints from executives that compensation provisions don’t really provide any useful intelligence.

Puerto Rico is also hot today, and I’m not talking about the weather. For everything you need to know, check this out, which tells you most of what is going on, including how they have the highest per capita debt than any other state, and how they can’t declare bankruptcy.

NY based hedge fund investors are now fighting to save their investments in Puerto Rico, which, a short while ago, was one of the hottest assets on the market.

For those of you new to the compliance world, or for those of you who would like to read more about it (probably all of you), then check this out for more information, like how vital the role of a CCO is, for instance.

At least being sued isn’t as bad as potentially facing a maximum of 20 years like an undercover DEA agent turned bitcoin thief who pleaded guilty to his charges. Was it really worth it?

Like the DEA thief, maybe these Hackers should’ve thought twice when they targeted employees of a Bitcoin exchange via Skype before stealing $5 million. What’s going on with Bitcoin exchange?

These thief’s should consider being like Brad Katsuyama, the man building a stock exchange that doesn’t screw people over. Now that’s the way to go!
