What Kevin Mitnick Talks About:

How Hackers Attack and How to Fight Back: It takes One to Know One
People are the weakest link. They can be manipulated or influenced into unknowingly helping hackers break into their organization’s computers. You’ll learn how easily you can be an unsuspecting victim who can be manipulated into handing over the keys the kingdom – if you haven’t done so already.

In this engaging and demonstration-rich experience (with live hacking demonstrations of the current threats to you and your organization) – Kevin Mitnick illustrates how a hacker’s thought process works and how they ply their trade-craft. You just might realize that you – like almost everyone else on the planet – have a misplaced reliance on security technology, which has now become ineffective against a motivated hacker using a technique called “social engineering.”

Kevin is uniquely qualified to take you inside the mind of a hacker, as it takes one to know one. He was once the FBI’s Most Wanted, although he never stole for profit or damaged systems. He is the most elusive computer break-in artist in history because he hacked into the NSA – and more than 40 major corporations just for the fun and adventure.

Ghost in the Wires: Go on the Run with the Most Wanted Hacker in the World
Treat yourself to an unforgettable experience. Come on the run and escape with Kevin as he takes you on this hilarious and mind-boggling adventure based upon his New York Times best-selling autobiography Ghost in the Wires: My Adventures as the World’s Most Wanted Hacker. Kevin is a master storyteller who puts you right in the action of this sophisticated cat-and-mouse game that led authorities through false identities, jumping from city to city, plenty of close shaves – and ultimately, a bizarre showdown with the feds. He was the most elusive computer break-in artist in history. He spent years skipping through cyberspace, and no matter how fast the authorities were, Kevin was faster – using technology not only to evade but also to spy on and track his pursuers. His story – packed with hysterical pranks and fear-driven hysteria – actually started a movement and changed how companies secure their information”. Would you like to see a real ghost?
