Deloitte Forensic Center's white paper suggests that the whistleblower rules proposed and finalized by Dodd-Frank have the potential to "increase corporate regulatory risks considerably and create a 'race to report' to the SEC."

In the paper, 10 bullet points outline the need for whistleblowing hotlines to detect fraud internally and ways to strengthen such a hotline, switching from reporting incentives to a day-to-day reporting expectation of employees, and methods for protecting whistleblowers.
