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.
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 theMember NSA - National Speakers Association power of instinct and redefining our paradigm of trust, John empowers audiences to regain control of that information - before it's too late.
His satisfied repeat clients include the Department of Defense, FDIC, the Federal Trade Commission, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Pfizer, the Federal Reserve Bank, Lincoln Financial Group, AARP, Prudential, Liberty Mutual, and scores of financial institutions, universities and associations of all sizes.
John's experiences as victim and victor led him to write the critically-acclaimed, award-winning book, "Stolen Lives: Identity Theft Prevention Made Simple," which was recently chosen as the #1 Business Book at the EVVY Awards, and his newly-released Privacy Means Profit. He recently appeared on 60 Minutes and is regularly featured on NBC, ABC, Fox and Money Matters Today.
John is president of The Sileo Group, an idea lab focused on guiding organizations to proactively adapt to and thrive in the ever-changing world of information domination.
