SAN DIEGO, Calif., (October 12, 2021) –  San Diego County Credit Union® (SDCCU®), one of California’s largest locally-owned financial institutions, is going one on one with cyber security expert Jim Stickley with an interactive interview on Wednesday, October 20, 2021 from 12:30 – 1:30 p.m. (PT).

Stickley will offer an inside look into various methods of cyber attacks that criminals use and detail how to reduce your risk by showing examples of real cases and tips to be aware of to avoid becoming victim. Given the current environment, he will specifically focus on current threats relating to coronavirus, including scam emails and phone calls from the IRS, phishing emails appearing to come from a co-worker, friend or family member, malicious COVID-19 mobile apps and more.
Stickley has stolen credit cards, hacked Social Security numbers, robbed banks, created fake ATMs, broken into armed government facilities and stolen from teenagers. Fortunately for all victims involved, Jim is a cyber security expert with over 20 years in the industry who was hired to perform these attacks by corporations testing their security and agencies interested in knowing just how easy it is to commit identity theft. His job is to find security flaws before the real criminals find them and help educate people as well as organizations about what they can do to protect themselves.

Today, Stickley is the CEO of Stickley on Security and can be seen throughout the United States speaking on topics that range from basic identity theft to national cyber terrorism. In addition, Stickley can be seen on numerous TV news programs, is a frequent guest on NBC's Today Show and is the security expert featured in Life Lock® infomercials.
