In 2006, siblings Steven Bearak and Judy (Bearak) Leary co-founded IdentityForce, Inc. Since then, the two have continued a 40-year family tradition of pioneering the identity theft protection industry. Under Steven’s leadership, the U.S. government awarded IdentityForce with elite Tier-One status as an approved provider of identity protection services for data breaches affecting over 21.5 million people. He is often sought out by members of the press as a source for various security topics spanning consumer and business audiences, and writes regularly for HR and security publications. Steven was born and raised west of Boston, MA, and currently resides there with his wife and three kids (two of which are out of the house now). As a dedicated sports fan, Steven enjoys golf, tennis, and skiing. Steven’s also a loyal supporter of all New England teams.
