BT Ireland has today announced ‘The World’s most famous Hacker’, Kevin Mitnick, as the keynote speaker at BT Mindshare, which takes place during the BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition on Thursday 11th January 2018 at 5.00pm in the RDS, Dublin.
 
Kevin Mitnick was formerly one of the FBI's Most Wanted and has since transformed himself into a trusted security consultant to Fortune 500 enterprises and governments worldwide, mentoring leaders and staff on both the theory and practice of social engineering and educating consumers on how they can protect themselves from today’s latest threats.
 
On his first visit to Ireland, the security expert will be performing a live hack and will bring insight and experience alive to a room full of senior business professionals where security is top of their agenda.
 
Over 1,100 inspiring students will showcase their projects to an expected 50,000+ visitors and 82 judges from 10th – 13th January 2018 and BT Mindshare is one of nearly 60 shows taking place over the three days. Highlights will include Ministry of Science UK, a live Q&A with astronaut in training, Norah Patten, mentalist David Meade, The Real Science of the Circus, 3D Space Journey and the popular World of Robots.  
 
Speaking about the upcoming BT Mindshare, General Manager of Cyber & Physical Security Operations at BT, Steve Benton said, "Security is one of the biggest boardroom agenda items across the globe. “We want to use this opportunity with Kevin as a chance to educate our customers to recognise the cyber security threats out there at the moment and how to engage with their boards to address them. At BT Group we are proud to have a strong foothold in the security space and delighted to launch our security proposition in Ireland at BT Mindshare."
