The World’s Most Famous Hacker

There is no one like Kevin

Kevin and The Global Ghost Team™ now maintain a 100 percent successful track record of being able to penetrate the security of any system they are paid to hack into using a combination of technical exploits and social engineering.

As CEO and chief “white hat” hacker at one of the most advanced boutique security firms in the world, Kevin mentors leaders, executives and staff on both the theory and practice of social engineering, topics in which he is the leading global authority.
