Pre-Conference Workshops


2017 Keynote Speakers

Introducing 2017 GRC keynote speaker John Sileo!

2017 Opening Keynote Address

John Sileo, CSP
CEO of The Sileo Group

John Sileo’s identity was stolen by a business insider and used to embezzle $300,000 from his clients. The exposure destroyed John’s company and consumed two precious years as he fought to stay out of jail. Combining real-world experience with years of study, John became an award-winning author, trusted advisor and leading speaker on managing privacy and reputation in an economy plagued
by digital overexposure.

John leverages his story of transforming risk into reward and the emotional connections it creates to evoke the skills of instinct, inquiry, and initiative that empower his clients to take control of their data exposure before it’s too late. John is the CEO of The Sileo Group, which advises clients on balancing risk, defending privacy and multiplying profits by building a culture of deep trust.

Introducing 2017 GRC keynote speaker Mark Thomas!

Keynote: Trust your GPS – Navigating Through Your GRC Priorities With Pinpoint Accuracy

Mark Thomas
President of Escoute






Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize the importance of having multiple ‘guidance systems’ to navigate your GRC efforts in a holistic manner
  • Learn how to leverage multiple perspectives and techniques in balancing performance and conformance when determining GRC priorities
  • Gain insight into how you can take the things you’ve learned at the conference and apply them in a manner that truly creates value for your enterprise
