Sileo is a Disarmingly Funny Keynote Speaker on a White-Hot Topic… Cyber Security

Entertaining & Interactive Main-Stage Events for Organizations Seeking a High-Content, High-Energy Keynote Speaker

“If we could quantify the impact of John’s cyber security presentation on our attendees, it would likely be in the millions.”

– Young Presidents Organization

John is a rare keynote speaker who leverages his own devastating experience with cybercrime to educate in a fun, interactive way.

John speaks from experience – his identity was stolen and used to commit cybercrimes of more than $300,000. While the cybercriminal hid behind John’s identity, Sileo and his business were held legally and financially responsible for the felonies committed. The breach destroyed John’s $2 million software company and consumed two years of his life as he fought to stay out of jail. Refusing to give in, John ultimately turned his experiences into his greatest success as a renowned cyber security expert. John will use his story and the emotional toll it took on him and his family to move your audience to action. But it is John’s refusal to give in to fear, or to allow your attendees to be paralyzed by the fear, that separates him from other cyber security keynote speakers.

Weaving his remarkable story with cutting-edge research, disarming humor and constant interaction, John inspires audiences worldwide to take ownership of the data that drives their success. In the words of one of his happy customers, “John turned his sour lemons into a lesson for all of us on avoiding his bitter fate!” Now he is one of the most recognized and respected thought leaders on cyber security, identity theft and entrepreneurial resilience. John specializes in making security fun and engaging, so that it sticks. Among all of his fellow keynote speakers on cyber security, John is repeatedly asked by his clients for encore performances. Whether live-hacking an audience member’s smartphone or talking about the latest cyber threats, John always makes security fun and memorable.
