This is for military personnel who have a serious issue with identity theft and financial issues… He brings a different perspective. He brings a combination of both the how-to for a person and his own personal experience. You get, on one side, this is the reality of what I’m dealing with and you get on the other side, here’s some things I can do. It’s all entertaining and really comes across great.
Department of Defense
John Sileo is an amazingly effective speaker on the subject of I.D. theft. One of the things that John does well is involve his audience in humorous ways. He pulls people out of the audience and kind of sticks it to them a little bit in terms of what they can do to hurt themselves. Even though they’re in a session with a speaker talking about I.D. theft, they will still make decisions that would allow a thief to gain advantage over them.
Producer and Director
If you’re serious about your investments and your money, then you need to get serious about protecting yourself. You need to make sure your identity is protected. If that is important to you, call my buddy, John Sileo.
…It was interesting, engaging and a little scary in terms of how much information I give out without even realizing it…
…It’s important information to share with our members about our use of the internet and what we are so willing to give out…
Your presentation helped to reinforce the important yet common sense tools that we all can use to protect our own privacy, and that we at the FTC can apply to protecting the personal information that the public entrusts to us. Over 150 staff members attended your informative and entertaining presentation and the response was very positive.
It was a pleasure to work with you and your staff and we appreciate your highlighting the importance of protecting data and the devastating effects that can result from a data breach.

— Tommy T. Thomas, Deputy Under Secretary of Defense
Your presentation was outstanding! We continue to receive numerous positive comments about your presentation, which our audience found highly inspiring, informative, and fun.

Awesome presentation! Perfect for closing the conference.
— Jennifer, Blue Cross/Blue Shield
I attended Pfizer’s Annual Information Security Officer’s Conference. The Inspirational Speaker 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. [If John speaks there next year,] I’ll be sitting in the front row!
