Cyber-theft expert Jim Stickley to keynote 2017 Symposium

Nov. 16, 2016 -- His website says – up front – that he’s an identity thief who’s robbed banks, stolen credit cards, created fake ID cards and even hacked Social Security numbers. But it adds: He’s no criminal.

He’s Jim Stickley, one of the premiere cybersecurity experts in the nation and the keynoter of the 2017 NASCUS/CUNA Cybersecurity Symposium, June 5-6, in San Diego.

Stickley has more than 20 years’ experience in the cybersecurity field, was a co-founder of TraceSecurity, Inc. (a leader in information security and compliance management) and is CEO of Stickley on Security, a firm focusing on cybersecurity education and awareness solutions.

Over the course of his career, Stickley notes that he has been involved in “thousands of security services for financial institutions, Fortune 100 corporations, healthcare facilities, legal firms, and insurance companies,” according to his website.

Additionally, he has been a consultant for Fox News, CBS and NBC networks, as well as the Associated Press. His views and commentary on cybersecurity have also been featured in stories and items in such publications as Time, Business Week, Fortune, the New York Times, PC Magazine and more.

He’s the author of “The Truth about Identity Theft,” which walks the reader through real-life scams and cons that business owners and consumers have been subjected to consistently.

The 2017 Cybersecurity Symposium takes place at the Westin Gaslamp Quarter Hotel in San Diego, June 5-6. The fourth annual edition of this event maintains the momentum from our editions in the previous three years, providing a look at and discussion of cutting-edge techniques and best practices and procedures that protect your organization from the latest threats.
