As a young man, Mitnick became the most notorious black hat hacker, known by the FBI as the “World’s Most Wanted” social engineer and computer hacker.
From the 1970s up until his last arrest in 1995 Kevin Mitnick skilfully eluded and bypassed corporate security safeguards, penetrating some of the most well-guarded systems, including, amongst countless others, the likes of IBM, Sun Microsystems, Digital Equipment Corporation, Pacific Bell, Motorola, Netcom, and Nokia.
Mitnick has since reinvented himself as a ‘white hat’ hacker. He is now a trusted security consultant to Fortune 500 companies and governments worldwide. He mentors leaders, executives and staff on both the theory and practice of social engineering, topics on which he is the leading global authority.
Mitnick and The Global Ghost Team maintain a 100% successful track record of being able to penetrate the security of any system they are hired to hack into using a combination of technical exploits and social engineering.
Mitnick has been called before Congress (both the House and the Senate) to testify on security matters affecting the USA. He has been a commentator, security analyst, and interview subject on CNN, CNBC, Al Jazeera, CBC, BBC, Radio Moscow, Tech TV, and 60 Minutes.
