THE ART OF DECEPTION:
Join us to hear Kevin Mitnick, "The World's Most Famous Hacker," illustrate how the threat of "social engineering" has quickly become one of the top security threats to society and industry today. Mr. Mitnick is one of the most trusted "white hat" security consultants to the Fortune 500 and governments, and he attracts a huge fan and supporter base that circles the globe. As the CEO of www.mitnicksecurity.com, Kevin and his Global Ghost Team maintain a 100% successful track record of penetrating the security of any system they are paid to hack into by using technology and social engineering.
Humans are the weakest link in security. People can be controlled, and he shows you how. A large number of unsuspecting victims never even realize they have been manipulated and are convinced to unwittingly hand over the keys to the kingdom. Will your staff be next? Will you? In this jaw-dropping presentation, which is akin to a technological magic show, Kevin demonstrates and illustrates-in an entertaining way-why almost everyone has misplaced reliance on security technology, which is virtually ineffective against a motivated attacker using social engineering.
Mitnick helps you perceive the threat of being controlled and learn what steps should be taken to protect yourself and train your organization for security awareness by thinking defensively. The knowledge you'll gain is indispensable, and the security difference might be invaluable.

GHOST IN THE WIRES:
My Adventures as the World's Most Wanted Hacker
Join us to hear one of the most fascinating life stories ever told of the computer generation by one who lived it. Kevin Mitnick is currently the most famous hacker in the world and is one of the most trusted "white hat" security consultants to the Fortune 500 and governments worldwide. As the CEO of www.mitnicksecurity.com, he and his Global Ghost Team maintain a 100% successful track record of penetrating the security of any system they are paid to hack into using technology and social engineering. Kevin's early love for accessing systems and accomplishing the impossible placed almost forty major organizations including Motorola, Sun Microsystems, and Nokia on his "been there, hacked that" list.
Even though his hacking wasn't for financial gain or to cause harm, his hacking methods morphed him into being the FBI's Most Wanted hacker, so he went on the run as the most elusive computer break-in artist in history. He spent years skipping through cyberspace, and no matter how fast the authorities were, Mitnick was faster, using technology not only to evade but also to spy on and track his pursuers. Kevin became among the first people to ever to be tracked down by the then new method of cellular triangulation, now a dated procedure. But that's what it took to finally end his life on the run.
Experience the mindset and fascinating stories and fear-driven myth as he takes you on an increasingly sophisticated cat-and-mouse game that led authorities through false identities, a host of cities, pranks on his pursuers, plenty of close shaves, and ultimately, a bizarre showdown with the feds. You'll hear about the judge who actually bought the idea that Kevin could start a nuclear war by whistling into a pay phone and proceeded to put him in solitary confinement for eight months. Ironically, Kevin now is paid well to do what he always loved doing for free.
This is the adventure that started a movement, and Kevin now attracts a huge fan and supporter base that circles the globe. Come be a part of it!Want to know more about Kevin's Speaking Engagements? Please visit here.
