Robert is a professional speaker, with a talent for communicating in front of audiences of all sizes. As a professional, he is informed by his belief in integrity, responsibility, reliability, commitment, competence, honor and respect. Robert can be trusted to provide a service that guarantees client satisfaction. Having presented thousands of programs over the past twenty years, Robert is well versed in what clients require from him in order to ensure a successful event.
Robert is “low maintenance,” and makes no demands of his clients. He meets every deadline and, unless he’s on a plane or giving a presentation, he responds to calls and emails within five minutes. Those who work with Robert constantly tell him, “I love working with you because you are so easy to work with.”
Robert’s honesty, confidence, and improper Bostonian style make him unique, as does his ability to persuade audiences to take ownership of their rights and responsibilities. His delivery is articulate, poignant, irreverent, and laced with humorous anecdotes and observations. The depth and breadth of his knowledge have made him a recognized expert in various fields, and some consider him a thought leader. His work is published and broadcast daily in print, radio, and television.
Testimonial letters from repeat clients are available upon request, as are demonstration videos and television clips. However, Robert feels that videos are an inadequate indicator of performance, since they fail to convey the essential qualities of a live speaker. Client recommendations are a better and more reliable guarantee of the service you will receive should you choose to hire Robert.
Robert Siciliano: Personal Security and Identity Theft Expert and Speaker
Professional: We are easy to work with, efficient and require NO maintenance. Most emails, phone calls and requests are handled within a day or less. No special requests or requirements. Ever. Robert makes meeting planners’ jobs easy, making them look good.
Experience: Robert has presented hundreds of programs to every conceivable audience in numerous countries and addressed thousands of individual concerns. There isn’t a security question he can’t address or a problem he can’t help your group work out.
Savvy: Robert has appeared on just about every North American based (and beyond) television network, on over 350 TV shows, and in thousands of local, national and international publications. There is a reason the Wall Street Journal and numerous other outlets call on him over and over again.
Customization: Your program and your audience are unique. Every program gets Robert’s special attention. Simply choose what topics you want covered from each program listed below, and Robert will develop a special event with your audience’s individual concerns in mind.
Personal security: Did you know that ordinary men, women and children face 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.
Identity theft prevention: 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 mater 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.
Information security: 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.
Social media security: 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.
Workplace violence prevention: Every school shooting, workplace shooting and even the Navy Yard shooting could have been prevented if we crowdsourced 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.
Travel security: 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 businesspeople 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.
A note from Robert:
Despite an increasingly open culture, trust is in short supply today. As a society, from our leadership down to our citizens, we have seen the very nature of trust and truth abused. Selecting a speaker is an exercise in trust in that you hope the person you choose to present in your environment is being truthful with his or her words and materials. It is a privilege to have an opportunity to present to any group that puts its faith and trust in me. This is a big deal, and I treat it as such. These are not just words; it is my promise to you and who I am.
Thank you for your consideration, and I look forward to sharing my expertise with you to help create a safer, more aware society.
