Neal O'Farrell

More than 30 years fighting cybercrime and identity theft around the world.

Neal O'Farrell has been described as the most experienced personal security expert on the planet. Now in his 35th year in cybersecurity and identity theft, he has worked with governments, the intelligence community, the military, the financial community as well as thousands of businesses and millions of consumers.

As founder of the non-profit Identity Theft Council, he has worked with thousands of victims and hundreds of law enforcement agencies on cases of all kinds. He's a firm believer in the connection between identity, security, and privacy and the need for consumers to get more involved in all three.

As one of the first generation of cybersecurity entrepreneurs, he ran afoul of the NSA when he got too good at using technology to keep secrets.
