Crypto Industry News:
The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has appointed a new head of its cyber branch.
Kristina Littman, who took over the position of Robert A. Cohen, will become the new head of the Cyber Unit division, according to a published SEC announcement.
Joining the SEC as an employment attorney in 2010, Littman climbed the rungs to become a senior advisor to the SEC chairman, Jay Clayton, in summer 2017. In this role, she advised Clayton on regulatory and policy issues regarding cryptocurrencies and digital assets, and also international affairs, trade and markets.
“Kristy’s innovative thinking and extensive experience in the Commission have made her an invaluable adviser and, most importantly, a tireless defender of American investors. It will be an excellent leader of a cybernetic unit that will continue to work in this critical and constantly developing area” – Clayton said.
The Cyber Unit was founded in 2017 as a way to solve cybersecurity problems and protect investors from dishonest members of the growing cryptocurrency and Blockchain industry.
Under the leadership of Robert Cohen, the unit was acting against the ICO, which the agency found unfair. Littman will inherit significant ongoing processes, including against Kik Interactive, for alleged involvement in an unregistered $ 100 million securities offer. The telegram is also fighting for a similar case brought by the SEC regarding a gram token.
Cohen left the SEC for a position of partner at the Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP law firm – a company that represented cryptographic companies, including Coinbase, as well as major financial institutions.
