In this episode of Phishy Business, we recount identity theft and cybersecurity awareness training with author Bennet Arron.

Heard the one about identity theft? Sadly this is not a joke, it is the title of our guest’s book – Bennett Arron. In this episode of Phishy Business, the comedian, speaker, and author recounts how his identity was stolen and the devastating consequences it had on his life. This episode was much like the book, insightful, funny, and thought-provoking at the same time.  

In this episode of Phishy Business, ‘Heard the One about Identity Theft?’, we discuss:

  • How devastating a theft of identity can be, and that it needs to be recognised as a serious crime.
  • How using humour is a great tool for cybersecurity awareness training.
  • Tips for developing a resilient state of mind when things get tough.
  • That documentary-making can be a dangerous process.
