    Additional online tools and software-based solutions from CCH that can help companies be more informed and comply with the new laws include:

    • CTI rList an enterprise-wide software tool designed to enable organizations to maintain surveillance of their employees' personal trading against restricted lists. This allows compliance officers within public companies to restrict insider trading of company stock during blackout periods or other prohibited times. Companies can also add other stocks to the restricted list, for example, those of competitors or potential acquisition targets, thereby preventing the possibility of trades that violate regulations or company policy.

    • SEC Compliance Desktop software for administering and complying with SEC regulations relating to insider trading, employee stock purchase plans and stock option plans. As part of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, Section 16 of the Securities Exchange Act was revised, requiring directors, officers or individuals that own more than 10 percent of a security to file disclosures when they purchase or sell shares of the stock. The SEC Compliance Desktop allows users to fill out several forms for Section 16 compliance in an on-screen format based on company needs.
