John Sileo’s identity was stolen by a business insider and used to embezzle $300,000 from his clients. The exposure destroyed John’s company and consumed two precious years as he fought to stay out of jail. Combining real-world experience with years of study, John became an award-winning author, trusted advisor and leading speaker on managing privacy and reputation in an economy plagued by digital overexposure.

John leverages his story of transforming risk into reward and the emotional connections it creates to evoke the skills of instinct, inquiry, and initiative that empower his clients to take control of their data exposure before it’s too late. John is the CEO of The Sileo Group, which advises clients on balancing risk, defending privacy and multiplying profits by building a culture of deep trust.

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

John graduated from Harvard University with honors and spends his free time with his amazing wife and two highly spirited daughters.

    "Every organization that values its employees (not to mention the privacy of company data) should bring John in to speak"
    Preview Properties

    I attended Pfizer’s Annual Information Security Officer’s Conference. The InspirationalSpeaker was Mr. John Sileo. John’s presentation was captivating, to say the least. His story is phenomenally sad. John rose above it all and now provides fantastic advice to companies and individuals on how to protect their identity.
    I left John’s presentation as equally inspired as when I left Mark Sanborn’s presentation at Paisley’s User Conference this year. [If John speaks there next year,] I’ll be sitting in the front row!
    R. LaChance

    "Fantastic presentation! It really made me think about how I handle day to day activities and the information I give out. I have already caught myself doing a "STOP" before giving out personal information."
    T. Vander Hart

    John was right on! His presentation was high energy, very clear and very helpful. Thank you for all of your helpful tips. I have already opted out!"
