Professional Identity Theft Speaker

Corporate identity theft crimes will cost businesses alone more than $60 Billionthis year. Your business doesn't have to be one of them.

John Sileo, a two-time victim of identity theft and America's top identity theft speaker, will inspire your audience to protect valuable company information as if it were their own. And he does it in a very different, highly entertaining way — by making it personal!

Organizations that proactively educate their team members about identity theft protection, drastically reduce their chances of a costly data breach. Your audience will experience first-hand what data theft feels like, and the resulting costs of poor privacy practices. John gets the audience up on their feet, laughing and learning. Increased awareness inside of your organization translates into an immediate return on your speaking investment.

Safe data is profitable data, whether it's a client's credit card number, a patient's medical file, an employees benefit plan or sensitive intellectual capital. By the time John finishes his hilarious closing story, your audience will be fully empowered to protect private information, at home and at work.

Information Survival Skills

The biggest threat to our identities (and to valuable corporate data) is our lack of a Privacy Reflex. Few of us have ever been trained to respond appropriately when someone requests our sensitive information. Think of how easily you give your information away on the Internet when someone promises you a free gift. This presentation will give your audience the fundamental building blocks to proactively protect valuable information assets. The result is a safer individual with strategic privacy skills that protect your organization's bottom line.

To bridge the gap between personal protection and professional privacy, Think Like a Spy can be paired with one or more of the profit-focused add-on components below.

I attended Pfizer’s Annual Information Security Officer’s Conference. The Inspirational Speaker was Mr. John Sileo. John’s presentation was captivating, to say the least. His story is phenomenally sad. John rose above it all and now provides fantastic advice to companies and individuals on how to protect their identity. I left John’s presentation as equally inspired as when I left Mark Sanborn’s presentation. [If John speaks there next year,] I’ll be sitting in the front row!
