Is your organization ready for CCPA? The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) becomes law on January 1, 2020. Since California represents over 12% of the US population and is one of the world’s largest economies, everyone needs to pay attention.

Our expert panel will help you:

  • See the big picture.
  • Figure out whether your business or clients are impacted.
  • Get insights into how to help your business or clients comply.
  • Understand how executives, IT and sales/marketing can work together.

Although it sounds like a nuisance, and it can be a challenge, CCPA can be a boon for organizations that do it right – particularly in this time of consumer mistrust.

Please join the AMA SF to get the insights you need to apply these critical regulations to your or your clients’ business.

Tom Myers. Data Compliance Director @ FocusVision

During Tom’s 18+ year tenure with FocusVision he has been actively involved in helping market researchers through the increasingly complicated world of privacy related rules, guidelines and laws.  In 2007, when research respondent privacy became the hot topic for market researchers, Tom understood that tackling this subject head-on was the only way to avoid confusion, misinterpretation and, ultimately, research paralysis. When GDPR became law, Tom took on the director of compliance role to focus on privacy law and is once again encouraging clients to engage in “the privacy conversation”. Given that most new laws are intentionally ambiguous, and CCPA is no exception, clarity is the key factor to taking correct and appropriate action.

Travis Killion. Director of Digital Product Management @ Albertsons Companies

The business domains have spanned from Realtor.com and creating the first online MLS aggregated search, SmartZip.com for using data to help provide insight into real-estate purchases, oDesk.com (now upwork.com) for helping form the online consulting platform, and at Albertsons building a word class loyalty platform where digital technologies meet brick and mortar stores. In every case, data has been the foundation to build upon.
