What we learnt from the FBI's former most wanted hacker, Kevin Mitnick

Day One of the free-to-attend event opened with a keynote speech from Kevin Mitnick, the world’s most famous hacker who formerly took the top spot on the FBI’s Most Wanted list.

Mitnick spoke in front a packed audience, educating them on the realities of the cyber security landscape.
