   KEYNOTES, BREAKOUTS, WEBINAR PROGRAMS:

Take Charge, Fight Back! Street Smart Street Safe Personal Security: Did you know that ordinary men, women and children face risk every day? Real Estate Agents, Nurses, and many other high risk professions face significant risk every day. There are 750,000 registered sex offenders in the U.S., and thousands more are unaccounted for. Women are assaulted, children are abducted, teens make themselves vulnerable online and away at school, and everyone’s trying to keep home invaders from breaching the castle walls.

In the personal security program, Robert discusses the unique situations families face in the physical and virtual worlds, and determines your best options to protect family and loved ones from crime—everything from how to protect your stuff to how to protect your lives, in various scenarios inside and outside the home.

Protect Your Privacy and Credit From Prying Eyes! Identity Theft Protection Prevention and Awareness:    Every few seconds, someone’s identity is stolen. Computers are hacked, wallets are stolen, credit cards are compromised and credit is ruined. The fact is, the system we function under is set up to fail—and unless consumers know their options, it’s just a matter of time before they are victimized themselves.
In the identity theft program, you will learn time- and money-saving techniques to prevent identity theft from taking over your life. Get the scoop on all the various automated tools consumers can set up to monitor their identities and secure their information, no matter whose hands it’s currently in. When you make your data and identity a tougher target to hit, you render it essentially useless to a thief.

Defend From Hackers Attackers Thieves & Organized Criminals! Risk Management: Information/Computer Security and Privacy Protection: There is a reason why we keep hearing about data breaches involving millions of credit card and account numbers: hacking is lucrative, with criminals making more in a day than most of us make in a year. The bleeding will not stop anytime soon—and the more time you spend uninformed, the better your chances are of being targeted.
In the information security program, you will learn that whether you are a small business or a family of four, there are certain fundamentals that you can follow to protect your data or the data you are entrusted with.

Bullet Proof Social Media: Online Safety/Security & Reputation Management: There was a time when we carefully “minded our P’s and Q’s,” but now everything is out there for everyone to see because the mole on the inside is us, and we are giving away all the data. The risks we face from sharing too much information include everything, including personal security risks, damaged reputations, and significant business liabilities that put all operations in jeopardy.
In the social media security program, you will recognize what puts you, your business, your data and your reputation at risk. Learn from others’ mistakes and develop policies to prevent employees, families and even you from saying, doing or posting things that you’ll regret later. Robert will answer all your questions and show you how to create a fool (fool being the operative word) proof plan.

Active Shooter Workplace Violence Red Flags, Prediction and Prevention: Every school shooting, workplace shooting and even the Navy Yard shooting could have been prevented if we crowd sourced our security. The fact is that when someone’s about to “go postal,” that person tells the world in many obvious ways. Organizations that do nothing and say it can’t happen to them are next in line when it comes to being unprepared.
In the workplace violence prevention program, you will learn the red flags that at-risk students and employees exhibit and know how to best educate and inform front-line employees, managers and supervisors. When you recognize what methods to use, you will create an observant and security-conscious company culture.

Corporate Safe Travel Security at Home and Abroad: Whether traveling for business or pleasure, there are certain pitfalls you face when leaving the comforts of home. Distractedly packing half your life into a few small bags makes even the most seasoned traveler a target for thieves and kidnappers. Different cultures pose different risks, and vacationers and business people alike are at a disadvantage.
In the travel security program, you will learn the ins and outs of travel security when packing, in airports, on airplanes, at the rental car counter, on the road and in hotels. Discover the various scams and ruses and learn how to become a tougher target as you uncover resources to research each destination and put systems in place to keep you, your family and your employees safe and secure.

Full Biography

When President Bush told all Americans to be on “high alert,” he reinforced the message that speaker and author Robert Siciliano has been carrying throughout the USA for more than a decade: to increase security and reduce liability, consider the solution that is so effective, so well-thought of, these major media offered it to their audiences.

Millions of people have already learned the secrets of personal safety and security developed by one man. His skills have benefited thousands more through presentations to GMAC, the National Association of Realtors©, Dominos Pizza, United Bankers Bank, Conference of State Bank Supervisors, and the American Society of Association Executives among others. Known as “The Lifesaver,” this man is safety expert Robert L. Siciliano, a certified security instructor for numerous industry associations and a highly praised consultant. He can bring the same benefits to your organization. He is not selling fear. The statistics speak for themselves. Robert offers a solution to an ongoing problem.

Siciliano was motivated to enter the personal security field over two decades ago upon being a victim of theft and violence and seeing crime all around him. He began hearing from friends and young women how they had been robbed, raped, threatened or attacked by acquaintances and strangers. At the time resources were scarce to inform and educate on how to predict and prevent such crimes. Determined to reduce such assaults, Siciliano began to educate himself. Karate and kick boxing were the beginning of his efforts to learn how to protect and defend oneself. His life became a study of the fundamental principles of security. Siciliano is also an expert in a self-defense program in which the student is confronted with simulated real-life attack situations using a technique called “adrenal-stress training.”

Siciliano has been surrounded by fraud throughout his entire life. Growing up in Boston provided numerous options for “earning” through fraudulent scams. However committing criminal acts never interested him. What has always had Roberts attention is how brilliant the criminal “hackers” or more appropriately termed “crackers” are who perpetrate those crimes.

In the mid 90?s Roberts small business qualified for merchant status and began accepting credit card orders. His business received its first fraudulent credit card order within a week. Robert subsequently tracked down the criminal at his home and went on to investigate and expose many others who had targeted his business. In 1995 Robert tore apart his first IBM PS1 with Windows 3.1. With the help of his “whacker” and hacker friends he began to learn about the underground world of black hat hacking. In the late 90’s he witnessed the exploding growth of identity theft fueled by internet access to information, the speed of technology outpacing security and a fundamentally flawed system of identification.

For over 20 years Robert has been researching and keeping in tune with all aspects of security by staying on top of what is new and ahead of what is next at all times. His purpose is to inform and educate you to avoid becoming a statistic. He says “There always has been, there is now and there will always be a criminal predatory element stalking their next victim. Being proactive and knowing your options are essential.” Attend his program, give him an hour of your life and he will give you a lifetime of his.

Robert lives in Boston and rides an 87 Harley Davidson Low Rider.
