The SEC stated that it would prioritize enforcement and examinations initiatives relevant to retail investors, expand the use of big data to detect and enforce against misconduct and modernize disclosure requirements.

Second, the SEC said that it would "develop and implement a robust regulatory framework that keeps pace with evolving markets, business models, and technologies."
