SAN DIEGO, Calif., (April 4, 2024) – San Diego County Credit Union® (SDCCU®), one of California’s largest locally-owned financial institutions, is going one-on-one with cybersecurity expert Jim Stickley with an interactive interview on Wednesday, April 10, 2024 from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. (PT).

Stickley will offer an inside look into various cyberattack methods that criminals use and detail how to reduce your risk by showing examples of actual cases. He will focus on the most current scams, including scam emails and texts, fraudulent phone calls claiming to be from the IRS, phishing attempts, malicious apps and more.  

Stickley has successfully stolen credit cards and social security numbers, robbed banks, created fake ATMs, broken into armed government facilities and stolen from teenagers. Stickley, who has over 20 years of experience in the cybersecurity industry, was hired by corporations to perform attacks in order to test their security and see 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 and organizations about what they can do to protect themselves.

Stickley is also 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 cyberterrorism. Stickley has been featured on numerous TV news programs, is a frequent guest on NBC's Today Show and is the security expert featured in LifeLock infomercials.
