John Sileo’s identity was stolen from his business and used to embezzle $300,000 from his clients. While the thief covered his crimes using Sileo’s identity, John and his business were held legally and financially responsible for the felonies committed. The breach destroyed John’s company and consumed two years of his life as he fought to stay out of jail.

In response, John made it his mission to help organizations and individual protect the data that underlies their wealth. Combining real-world experience with years of study, John became an award-winning author, trusted advisor and keynote speaker on identity theft, cyber security, online privacy and digital fraud.

John specializes in making security fun and engaging for audiences, so that it works. By leveraging his story of loss and resilience, John helps his clients to take control of their data exposure before it’s too late.

John’s body of work includes engagements with the Pentagon, USA Today, VISA, Rachael Ray, the FDIC, Pfizer, 60 Minutes, Homeland Security, Blue Cross, Anderson Cooper, Allstate, The Washington Post, the Federal Reserve, Fox Business, University of Massachusetts and organizations of all sizes.

John is President and CEO of The Sileo Group, a think tank devoted to helping organizations secure the data that drives their profits. John graduated from Harvard University with honors and spends his free time with his amazing wife and two highly spirited daughters.
