LOVELAND — Nationally recognized speaker John Sileo will deliver the keynote address at “Cybersecurity: Protecting Your Business While Building Trust with Your Customers,” a symposium on identity theft and cybersecurity that will include a panel discussion with industry experts.
The event, set for Nov. 1 at the Embassy Suites in Loveland, is for business owners, company management, employees who are responsible for billing and finances and students who will soon enter the workforce.
Attendees will learn about the ways cyber hacking happens and how employees to can be a company’s strongest defense in the fight against cybercrime.
Sileo’s identity was stolen by a business insider and used to embezzle $300,000 from his clients several years ago. The exposure destroyed his company and consumed two years as he fought to stay out of jail. Combining real-world experience with years of study, Sileo became an award-winning author, adviser and speaker on managing privacy and reputation in an economy plagued by digital overexposure.
Sileo leverages his story of transforming risk into reward and the emotional connections it creates to evoke the skills of instinct, inquiry and initiative that helps his clients take control of their data exposure before it’s too late.
The panel discussion will include Ryan Bergsieker, an attorney specializing in cybersecurity defense with Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher; Bill Fanelli, chief security officer for the Council of Better Business Bureaus; and Stephen Hayne, professor of computer information systems at Colorado State University.
Tickets are $40. The event includes breakfast. Registration information is available online or by calling 970-488-2045.
