Adam’s speaking topics include a broad range of security and personal finance topics, such as how to turn your credit and identity portfolios into résumés—and not rap sheets; the benefits and perils of credit; the continuing struggle between convenience and security online; how professionals and businesses can better protect consumer and employee data, as well as trade secrets and intellectual property; privacy issues and the “Internet of Things,” protecting data in a world of connected devices; the growing epidemic of tax fraud and medical ID theft; and how “breaches have become the third certainty in life,” along with the inevitability of identity theft and expert tips on how consumers can minimize their risk of exposure, monitor their credit and identity, and identify effective damage control programs.

Levin’s book “Swiped” is an Amazon Best Seller and has been listed as a best-selling business book by 800-CEO Reads and received several favorable reviews from Publishers Weekly, Kirkus and The Sunday Times (UK).
