About this event

Why should high tech founders consider information security, privacy, and compliance when launching their business? The most concise answer is because it matters to the customers of the business as well as its investors, employees, and trading partners. We've already seen Facebook and Uber singled out for their privacy practices.

On January 1, 2020, the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) goes into effect, impacting every business (including emerging businesses) in California. Join Privacy and Data Security attorney Jeffrey Glassman and Virtual Chief Information Security Officer Dave Watts as they chat about the scope of the CCPA and provide insight into how you can prepare for the new privacy and data security standards.

What is the CCPA? The California Consumer Privacy Act is a bill that will put guidelines on personal information collection and post-data-acquisition data usage by businesses.

What You'll Take Away: How this bill will apply to you as a business or consumer in the upcoming year and why

Why It matters: With the rise of technology founders, product managers, and entrepreneurs need to prevent legal and reputation risks. Build your company with an eye towards privacy, otherwise you may end up with user backlash, lawsuits and regulatory problems.
