George Vroustouris

FOUNDER • CERTIFIED IDENTITY PROTECTION ADVISOR

George Vroustouris, is a seasoned entrepreneur, spanning three decades in the communications technology field. His B2B firms produced corporate video, digital media, web marketing, and online business software. 

During the last decade, much of his focus was in data management, analysis, and cyber security, where he first recognized our rapid trade off of privacy and security, for technical access and convenience. 
This trend turned George’s focus on the virtual media revolution, big data, the dark web, and the seemingly endless data collection and sharing in social networks. 

As a Nationally Certified Identity Protection Advisor® (CIPA), UIT trainer, public speaker, and adjunct instructor at Harper College, George starts every day studying the identity theft crisis, cyber risks, and issues around our privacy rights. 

George believes we all have the right to privacy and we deserve the peace of mind that our personal data is protected. He provides his community and his clients with the vetted resources, protection and comprehensive training needed, to secure and manage their identity, reputation and digital assets.
