I was sure to find the answer to this rightaway, but somehow it didn't show up. I'm trying to add an organization as an author with "and" inside the name. Like:

    author = {Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)},

this should show up as: Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). (2011). etc...

I'm using the apacite package.

    author = {{Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)}},

in this case the author must be handled as one group.

You can include name components in an additional set of braces to stop bibtex's processing. So, try {{Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)}}.
