  • Digital Deception: Inside the Mind of a Hacker

    People think that hackers are just skilled with computers. They understand logic and can program— and that’s it. But hackers are masterminds at deception; and it’s their extraordinary understanding of the psychology of trust that gets them past your defenses.

    The best malware is nothing without the cunning force behind the script. These “social engineers” do the hard work: researching your company, acquiring bread crumbs of information, and investing the time to build a relationship with your staff before deploying their attack. They’re patient and precise, posing as authority figures or trusted vendors to slip in unnoticed. Whether it’s clicking a malicious link or holding the door open for the friendly Fire Inspector, hackers disguise their intentions through extraordinary feats of deception.

    But what if you could get inside the mind of a hacker? If you could spot their tricks in action, you’d be much less likely to be fooled. The good news is, with the right help, you can see past the ruse.

    Say hello to Kevin Mitnick.

    Kevin was once on the FBI’s “Most Wanted” list for hacking into 40 major corporations just for the fun of it. Today, Kevin ethically hacks for a living, as the CEO for the globally-renowned cybersecurity corporation: Mitnick Security.

A must-watch talk to unravel the mysterious yet fascinating art of digital deception, this will be a presentation your audience remembers for years to come.

  • It Takes One to Know One: Live Hacking Demonstrations with the World’s Once “Most Wanted” Hacker

    The iconic saying goes, “it takes one to know one”— and in many cases, it’s true. That’s why when it comes to hacking, you can’t trust the theory of cybersecurity alone. You also need to understand its application.
