Insider trading isn’t just a risk for major company stockholders. Any employee, at any level of the business, is at risk for violating insider trading laws and policies.

The Insider Trading course provides employees with critical guidance and best practices to avoid violations. Employees will learn the definition of “inside information” and are encouraged to ask critical questions to help them spot risks and prevent violations – even inadvertent ones. Employees will also receive a checklist of best practices that can help both them, and the organization, avoid serious consequences.

Whether done on purpose or by accident, insider trading can put individuals and companies at serious risk. Comprehensive training can help lower that risk – keeping trades ethical and legal.
