Kevin Mitnick is perhaps best known as the hacker who made it onto the FBI’s Most Wanted List for breaking into the computer systems of multiple government agencies and over 40 major corporations. Mitnick was a fugitive for four years, and after getting caught was put on trial and sentenced to five years in a federal prison, including a year in solitary confinement.

Since leaving prison, Mitnick has changed tack. He still hacks, but now works as a whitehat hacker whose consultancy firm helps clients find the vulnerabilities in their systems so that cyber-criminals don’t find them first.

Mitnick also serves as Chief Hacking Officer for KnowBe4, a company that trains employees of organisations to spot vulnerabilities, including their own. He has authored four books: The Art of Intrusion, The Art of Deception, Ghost in the Wires, and The Art of Invisibility.

He also goes on speaking tours all over the world. His website lists 29 destinations just in the first 10 months of 2018.

During these tours, he shows people the tradecraft that’s “used by the bad guys to compromise their businesses and their personal systems and what steps to take to mitigate the risk, so they do not become victims,” he says.
