Webinar: Cyber Threat Evolution: Hacking the Hacker’s Mindset

October 21, 2020 @ 1:00 pm2:00 pm CDT

Cyber Threat Evolution: Hacking the Hacker's Mindset

The cybercrime landscape has shifted radically. Rapid growth in remote workforces, cloud jacking, smart devices, cyber blackmail and disinformation have altered the way we must defend our data, privacy and profits. Increasingly, cybercriminals leverage crisis and news headlines to fuel and fund social engineering scams, financial fraud and geo-political influence. Hackers don’t just adapt to change; they bank on it. Has your mindset evolved?

Never lose hope or give in to fear, because effective solutions exist when you take ownership. But the answers don’t just reside in technology – they reside in people and innovation – with the executives and employees who become either your weakest link or your most flexible line of data defense. In this presentation, John Sileo will leverage lessons learned from losing his entire business to cybercrime while simultaneously facing jailtime. He will show you how to deploy a threat narrative to empower your culture of security, and how crisis and failure are untapped weapons in your anti-fraud toolkit.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand how cybersecurity has shifted due to recent events
  • Identify the 3-5 greatest risks growing out of our new reality
  • Take concrete steps to minimize these vulnerabilities

Presenter: John Sileo
John Sileo left hi-tech consulting and became an entrepreneur to reclaim his greatest priority – being present for his family. Six successful years, a thriving $2M business and two precious daughters later, he lost it all to cybercrime.

Because the cybercriminal masked the crimes using John’s identity, Sileo was held responsible for the felonies committed. The losses destroyed his company, decimated his finances and consumed two years as he fought to stay out of jail. And from these bitter circumstances, John made lemonade.

John Sileo is an award-winning author and highly sought-after cyber expert from 60 Minutes to the Pentagon, USA Today to Rachel Ray. His satisfied clients include a Who’s Who of the Fortune 1000, Government, Associations and Small Business. The CEO of a Denver-based cyber think tank, an honors graduate from Harvard University and an inductee into the National Speakers Hall of Fame, John still values his remarkable wife and highly spirited daughters over all other successes.
