Peter Warmka Biography

Peter Warmka is a former Senior Intelligence Officer with the CIA, having over 20 years of experience in breaching the security of target organizations overseas in pursuit of foreign intelligence requirements. His area of expertise, known as human hacking or social engineering, focused on the identification, assessment, and manipulation of key insiders to facilitate the breach. Such targets included the inner circles of senior government leadership, research institutions, terrorist groups, organized criminal groups, and entities involved in proliferation. In addition to his own targeting initiatives, Warmka served as a senior manager of complex operational platforms, where he mentored junior intelligence officers on their operations.

Following his retirement from public service, Warmka became obsessed with the growing incidents of data breaches and the fact that over 90 percent of them are initiated through some form of human hacking. Leveraging his area of expertise, he decided to get back into the fight by founding the Orlando-based firm Counterintelligence Institute. Today, his passion and mission are assisting city, state, and federal government entities, non-profits, academic institutions, private companies, and individuals in safeguarding their sensitive proprietary and personal data. At the core of Warmka's approach to cybersecurity risk management is focusing on how to prevent external threat actors from manipulating employees into becoming insider threats.

Warmka's security awareness training programs prioritize proactive measures that organizations can implement to avoid falling victim to data breaches. However, as a licensed investigator specializing in cybercrime, Warmka also assists clients who have fallen victim to financial fraud and extorsion.

Warmka is a frequent speaker, having delivered keynote presentations to a variety of audiences and two TEDx talks. In addition to co-hosting “The Security Guy and the CIA Spy,” Warmka has been a guest on numerous podcasts, including “RANE Insights," “Cyberwire Human Hacking,” “Paul’s Security Weekly,” “Truth Lies and Coverups,” and “The Action Catalyst.”

He has contributed to and authored numerous publications in English and Spanish on social engineering and the manipulation of insiders. His best-selling non-fiction book "Confessions of a CIA Spy - The Art of Human Hacking" was featured on Fox32. It is sought after by individuals, as well as by corporations providing it as a training resource for their personnel.

Warmka also has over 10 years of experience as a curriculum designer and specialized tradecraft instructor for various special forces units of the Department of Defense. He finds mentoring those who risk their lives in service to their country as an honor and privilege.

Warmka received a bachelor’s degree in Liberal Arts from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and a master’s degree in International Business Management from Thunderbird School of Global Management. He is a Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE), a Certified Protection Professional (CPP), and a Certified Instructor at CIA University (CIAU).

  • "Confessions of a CIA Spy - The Art of Human Hacking"

    Format: 20-90 minute keynote or training seminar.

    Most successful data breaches are initiated by human hacking. Threat actors carefully select, assess, and manipulate key employees within a target organization who in turn become the “insider threat.” Advanced social engineering techniques are employed to effectively circumvent the policies, procedures and technological controls put in place to safeguard proprietary information, client data and sensitive personnel records. For over 20 years of his career with the Central Intelligence Agency, Peter developed expertise in the identification, assessment, and manipulation of insiders to breach the security of target organizations in pursuit of high value foreign intelligence.

Such attacks can lead to a significant loss in operations and even force the enterprise out of business. C-Suite executives can no longer view security, whether physical or cyber, as a cost accounting item, but rather, an investment in people, processes and technologies.

    Technology is neither good nor evil. Its impact on society depends upon the intentions of the beholder. Since its inception in 2017, the use of synthetic media to create Deepfakes is evolving at an explosive rate. While proponents of such technology enthusiastically embrace numerous applications for the benefit of humankind, its use by fraudsters has already resulted in several successful multi-million dollar fraud schemes.

  • "Taking Back Control Over Your Identity and Privacy"

    Format: 20-90 minute keynote or training session

    In this era of big data expansion, many people reluctantly relinquish control over their privacy allowing their identity to be transformed into a marketable binary code. While their personal information may be used to enhance a company's efficiency in marketing products and services, it can also be exploited by criminals and other threat actors for identity theft leading to devastating consequences for its victims. In 2021 alone, over 1.5 million Americans suffered identity theft resulting in 52 billion dollars in reported loses. Can you afford to become part of that statistic?

    Few people realize that there are many ways they can effectively take back control over their privacy by incorporating specific settings on a variety of online applications in addition to exercising care in what they post on their social media platforms.

    Leveraging his expertise as a former CIA intelligence officer and private investigator, Peter will clearly illustrate the evolution of victims who had to react to identity theft instead of proactively incorporating best practices which would have prevented them from ever happening in the first place.
