John Sileo Protects Franchises’ Privacy, Identity & Reputation

According to, “…the total average cost of a data breach worldwide has increased 15% over the past year to more than $3.5 million.

If $3.5 million is average, you might be wondering, just how pricey were the most expensive data breaches of the past year? According to Ponemon, the priciest data breach to resolve cost the company nearly $31 million. Even the least expensive data breach in the study still cost the company upwards of $750,000.

Because of the distributed nature of franchise businesses, and as frequent users of smartphones, tablets, cloud computing, remote access, and social media, franchises face a range of technological exposure points that threaten their bottom line. And as remote checkout, Near Field Communications, RFID and bleeding edge retail tools seep into the equation, your risks only escalate. John’s body of work on these topics includes engagements with the Department of Defense, National Retail Federation, Do It Best, La Quinta, Pfizer, Homeland Security, Blue Cross Blue Shield, the FDIC, Experian and hundreds of small businesses.
