“Because non-compliance with the CCPA could cost companies dearly, instituting stronger privacy protections at the federal level might be next or alternatively, California’s statute may likely spur other states to proactively pass similar legislation, regardless of federal action.

"[Sanford] has a sound legal mind regarding international anti-money laundering and anti-terrorism matters.  She has a keen understanding of the practical aspects of law enforcement in the United States and various South American nations. Some of those countries have been mentioned publicly as potential weak links in the ongoing struggle against money laundering by organize crime and terrorists."
