The Story of Kevin Mitnick: Cybersecurity Celebrity Speaker & Threat Demonstrator
As the most elusive computer break-in artist in history, Kevin’s legacy begins with an electronic joyride.
The legend (and the truth of it) is that Kevin once hacked into more than 40 of the world's biggest companies and government organizations. However fast the authorities were, he was faster, sprinting through phone switches, computer systems and cellular networks to elude capture.
Kevin's creativity, skills and persistence forced the authorities to rethink the way they pursued him, and all hackers. His story has been the catalyst for the entire cyber security industry, affecting the way both companies and people protect their most sensitive information since 1995. It’s even become a popular storyline for books, TV and movies.
Today, Kevin is still finding a way inside of the world’s most secure systems, now as a trusted security consultant to Fortune 500 companies and governments worldwide.
The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Mitnick Security Consulting, Kevin, and The Global Ghost Team™ maintain a 100 percent successful track record in their ability to penetrate the security of any system they are paid to hack into using a combination of technical exploits and social engineering.
In his role of Chief Hacking Officer (CHO) of cybersecurity firm partner KnowBe4, Kevin helps to train users around the world to be more secure, through the world's #1 security awareness training and platform to counteract social engineering.
