Cyber Security Expert (the Hard Way)

 

John Sileo left hi-tech consulting and became an entrepreneur to reclaim his greatest priority - being present, every day, for his wife Mary and their dream of starting a family. Six successful years, a $2M business and two precious daughters later, he lost it all to cybercrime.

JUST THE FACTS

JOHN SILEO

Leveraging His Story

 

Because the cybercriminal, a company insider, masked the crimes using John’s identity, John was held legally and financially responsible for the felonies committed. The losses destroyed his company, decimated his finances and consumed two years of his family life as he fought to stay out of jail. John shares his entire story from stage.

 

During his keynote, John laces his story with humor and interaction to inspire audiences to take security seriously without giving in to the fear. He has molded his first-hand experiences into a string of successes as an award-winning author, 60 Minutes guest and keynote speaker to the Pentagon, Schwab and thousands of audiences ready to take concrete action on cyber security, digital privacy and tech/life balance.

JUST THE FACTS

JOHN SILEO

Husband, Dad and 2nd Degree Black Belt

 

Everything John does revolves around his family. In addition to working every day with his Mom and Dad (it was their business he destroyed, so it was the least he could do to employ them), John limits his travel so he can spend more time watching The Bachelor with his highly-spirited daughters (which he will deny, if asked), snowshoeing the Rocky Mountains with his adventurous wife and training for his 3rd-degree black belt in taekwondo (where he’s regularly thrashed by teenagers half his weight). John does in fact like pina coladas and getting caught in the rain. He’s more into bourbon and red wine than he is into champagne. Even though he graduated with honors from Harvard University (I know, we can hardly believe it too!), he agreed to name his cairn terrier "Oreo" because that’s what his girls wanted. John is more interested in making friends than in making money, but he loves making his living as a speaker and author.
