The Securities and Exchange Commission today announced charges against three auditors for violating federal securities laws or failing to comply with U.S. auditing standards during their audits and reviews of financial statements for publicly traded companies. The actions are part of the agency’s ongoing effort to hold gatekeepers accountable for the important roles they play in the securities industry.  Internally designated “Operation Broken Gate,” the Enforcement Division’s efforts seek to identify auditors who fail to carry out their duties and responsibilities consistent with professional standards.   Gatekeepers that fail to comply with professional standards put investors at risk due to the possibility of undetected fraud or other financial misstatements.
