As Eddy Elfenbein has pointed out on Crossing Wall Street, you can use the NASD website to look up information on your broker. Or you can, say, look up the employment history of alleged insider trader Eugene Plotkin.
There's lots of confidentiality language that you have to agree to in order to use the site.

It still lists Plotkin as currently employed at Goldman, for instance. So beware.
