About John Sileo, Identity Theft Expert
Helping You Keep Data Theft from Eroding Your Profits, Wasting Resources, and Potentially Destroying Your Life
Identity Theft Speaker John Sileo
John Sileo’s identity was stolen out of his corporation and used to commit a series of crimes, including $300,000 worth of digital embezzlement. While the data thief (an "internal spy") operated behind the safety of John’s identity, John and his business were held legally and financially responsible for the felonies committed. Ultimately, the data breach destroyed John's corporation and consumed two years of his life as he fought to stay out of jail. But John chose to fight back and speak out.
America's Top Identity Theft Speaker
Emerging from this crisis, John became America's leading professional speaker on identity theft prevention and corporate data privacy, teaching audiences to bulletproof their bottom line against data breach. Weaving his story together with cutting-edge research, disarming humor and hilarious audience interaction, John inspires every one of us to emotionally grasp and intellectually comprehend the profitability of privacy. After all, sensitive data - whether personal or professional - is the most valuable asset inside of our organizations. By examining the role of fear, incorporating the power of instinct and redefining our paradigm of trust, John empowers audiences to regain control of that information - before it's too late.
