Sileo began his writing career for The Harvard Crimson. After having his identity stolen two times, he wrote his first award-winning book, Stolen Lives, Identity Theft Prevention Made Simple. John is a contributing author to this blog as well as to many other publications, including Dr. Laura, AllBusiness, Womenof, Small BusinessSuccess and many others. His second book, Privacy Means Profit, is published by John Wiley & Sons. John is particularly fascinated by subjects of information control, including identity theft, data breach, privacy, reputation management, cloud computing and social media.
John Sileo is America’s Top Identity Theft Speaker and his 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. His experiences as victim and victor led him to write the critically acclaimed, award-winning book, Stolen Lives, which was recently chosen as the #1 Business Book at the EVVY Awards.
John teaches 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. His satisfied repeat clients include the Department of Defense, FDIC, 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 is regularly featured on NBC, ABC, Fox and Money Matters Today.
Think Like a Spy: Bulletproofing Your Identity. Identity theft is America’s fastest growing crime and the #1 concern among all Americans. This crime not only affects individuals & families, but also has costly liability implications for every organization (data breach, corporate espionage, reputation damage). Good personal privacy habits lead to safer data within a business – and safe data is profitable data.
