This book builds a bridge between good personal privacy habits (protect your wallet, online banking, trash, etc.) with the skills and motivation to protect workplace data (bulletproof your laptop, server, hiring policies, etc.).
In Privacy Means Profit, John Sileo demonstrates how to keep data theft from destroying your bottom line, both personally and professionally. In addition to sharing his gripping tale of losing $300,000 and his business to data breach, John writes about the risks posed by social media, travel theft, workplace identity theft, and how to keep it from happening to you and your business.

Privacy Means Profit was the first book I read that really lays out how businesses—large or small—should be thinking about & preventing identity theft. Turns out ID theft is not just something that impacts individuals—it can seriously whack the market cap of large enterprises and can put smaller companies out of business. Definitely worth a read by business owners, CEOs, CFOs, and CIOs.
