  • Money-laundering rules might not be as tough as expected
    The Treasury Department, which is set to strengthen money-laundering regulations in the next few weeks, has backed away from some of the strictest proposals but will likely still require banks to collect more information than they currently do. Regulators likely will ask banks to determine who profits from new corporate accounts but will not require them to independently verify that information.

  • Expert: Hackers could turn from banks to other businesses
    The success of recent cyberattacks on U.S. banks is likely to inspire other hackers, and the target could shift to other types of commerce, according to one expert.

  • What bosses should do instead of micromanaging
    It's tempting for leaders to micromanage their teams and big projects, but it's important to resist that urge, writes CollegeHumor CEO Paul Greenberg.
