RCCEEG St. Louis, led by Executive Director Capt. Stewart Glenn, of the Clayton Police Department, is an organization of local law enforcement officers, prosecutors, and computer professionals who are dedicated to providing local police departments, upon request, with manpower, technical, and legal assistance in computer-related investigations.
Sileo is a Lakewood, CO-based cyber security expert, who has presented to executives with the Pentagon, Homeland Security, Visa, Charles Schwab, the FDIC, the Federal Reserve Bank, Pfizer, and hundreds of other organizations, universities, and associations.
Interestingly, Sileo speaks from experience: His identity was stolen years ago and used to electronically embezzle $300,000 from his business clients. While the cybercriminals masked their crimes using Sileo’s identity, he and his business were held legally and financially responsible.
The breach destroyed Sileo’s company, but he ultimately turned his experience into his greatest success as a renowned expert on identity theft, cyber security, online privacy, and digital fraud.
The workshop is hosted by dpi and sponsored by Sophos, a business grade cybersecurity company.
