HOW HACKERS ATTACK AND HOW TO FIGHT BACK:
With Live Hacking Demonstrations of the Current Threats to You and Your Organization

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, Kevin Mitnick illustrates how a hacker’s thought process works and how they ply their tradecraft. 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. Kevin is `now a trusted security consultant to Fortune 500 companies and governments worldwide, and he leads the world’s top security penetration testing team and they 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.

Kevin is the worldwide authority on social engineering and constantly improves and updates this highly effective and acclaimed "security awareness" presentation that illustrates the latest threats and risks most people don’t even know exist.

You’ll learn how to detect manipulation and take steps to protect yourself and your organization. Gain the power to think defensively.

GHOST IN THE WIRES:
Go on the Run with the Most Wanted Hacker in the World

The Catch Me if You Can of the Modern Age

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 bestselling autobiography, Ghost in the Wires: My Adventures as the World’s Most Wanted Hacker.

This is the Story the Government Doesn’t Want You to Know.

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. Although he never stole for financial gain or damaged systems, he did hack into the NSA and more than 40 major corporations just for the fun and adventure. 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?

CUSTOM KEYNOTE CREATED FOR YOU:
A Scripted Conversation with Live Hacking

With your team, Kevin will create a custom experience with real live hacking that will inform, entertain and educate your attendees.

Don’t just tell them… show them!

Your audience will be more attentive as they are engrossed within a unique experience akin to a “technology magic show”.

You will provide a moderator, who, we suggest, should be part of your closing team for enterprise clients after the event, to be on stage with Kevin. This will help to create affinity for your team and recognition of the individual.

Your audience will easily grasp your concepts as Kevin showcases current hacks both he and his team use during penetration testing to evaluate his clients’ networks, systems, and devices for security vulnerabilities. He’ll also stand side-by-side with you to help elevate the services, competency, and message of you and your team because of his own first-class reputation as a world authority on cybersecurity.
