Author, Speaker, and Trainer on Identity Theft and Fraud

Identity theft is the crime of our time

Identity theft is the crime of our time due to the number of data breaches and fraudulent activities being perpetrated by the criminal element. ID theft may include mortgage & title fraud, terrorism, money laundering and other fraudulent activities against individuals and organizations.

Graham has worked in the lending industry for a major financial institution for over 13 years specializing in credit financing, and for over seven years in a real estate related sector. He has first-hand experience with preventing identity theft as well as risk management. Graham is a sought-after speaker in many industries and appears often on television and in the newspapers as a leading authority on the subject of ID theft and fraud.

Teaching employees about identity theft can build a culture of privacy which in turn can benefit the individual as well as the organization. The goal of the training is to reduce the incidents of data breaches and identity theft. Losing a laptop, sending a fax to the wrong number or not shredding sensitive paper is not acceptable anymore. Education through effective and focused training is a great vehicle for reducing human error.

“Our clients thoroughly enjoyed Graham's recent talk on How to Protect Yourself from Identity Theft. As a financial advisor with over 15 years experience I am always looking for topics and events that can add value to my client relationships; this topic and event was just perfect.”
