John Sileo - cyber security


In this video, cyber security expert, John Sileo, sits down to share some tips and insight for advisers to help protect their businesses from cyber crime. He believes that the biggest challenge for small businesses is awareness - just knowing that cyber security matters, a business can go out of business because of it, and it is important to pay attention to the severity of these types of things.

John Sileo left hi-tech consulting for two reasons: to start a family and to launch a software startup in the earliest stages of cloud computing. Six successful years, a multimillion-dollar business and two precious daughters later, he lost the business and his wealth to cybercrime.

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 personal life as he fought to stay out of jail.

John Sileo has shared his story and hard-earned lessons as an award-winning author, 60 Minutes guest and keynote speaker to the Pentagon, Schwab and thousands of audiences ready to defend their data. John specializes in the human element of cyber security and uses humor, audience interaction and cutting-edge research to keep his message relevant and entertaining.
