South Florida Science Center and Aquarium Presents Kevin Mitnick, teh World's Best Known Hacker

South Florida Science Center and Aquarium and 2018 Gala Chairpersons Mary Freitas, Elizabeth Gordon, and Caroline Rafferty invite guests to “The Science of Invisibility: An Evening with Kevin Mitnick.” The world’s most famous hacker, Kevin Mitnick, will share an informal presentation about his journey from criminal to consultant in the beautiful Circle Dining Room at The Breakers Palm Beach.

Once one of the FBI’s Most Wanted because he hacked into 40 major corporations just for the challenge, Kevin is now a trusted security consultant to the Fortune 500 and governments throughout the world. Kevin mentors leaders, executives, and staff on both the theory and practice of social engineering, topics on which he is the leading global authority. Kevin also helps consumers — from students to retirees — learn how to protect their information and themselves from computer hackers.
