THE ART OF DECEPTION: How Hackers and Con Artists Manipulate You and What You Can Do About It
Kevin’s Most Popular Speech for All Audiences

People are the weakest security 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. Kevin Mitnick will entertain and educate you by performing his "live technology magic show" of the latest hacking techniques. 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."

Social engineering is a technique used by hackers and con artists that leverages your tendency to trust. Trust is a truly noble human characteristic; however, in terms of personal and organizational security, it’s also a significant weakness because trust can be exploited. Kevin is the worldwide authority on social engineering and constantly improves and updates this highly acclaimed "security awareness" presentation with 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.

THE ART OF INTRUSION: How Hackers Attack and How to Fight Back
Rich in Real Case Studies

Breaking into your technology and security is easy. To learn why, first you must think like a hacker. In this engaging and demonstration-rich experience, Kevin Mitnick illustrates to you how a hacker’s thought process works and how they ply their tradecraft. You’ll start to see you and your organization as a target through the hacker’s eyes and gain new insights into "security awareness." Kevin then enables you to strengthen your defenses through concrete and actionable guidance.

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.

You’ll gain current and valuable insight into the hacker mindset by examining real-life computer break-ins. You’ll see how the perpetrators hacked in and how they successfully covered their tracks. More importantly, Kevin will share how you can prevent these same horror stories from being repeated in your organization in a cost-effective manner that offers maximum protection.

GHOST IN THE WIRES: The Story the Government Doesn’t Want You to Know
The Catch Me if You Can thrill ride 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.
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?

Dell, Inc.

“Kevin has a unique ability to connect with both technical and non-technical groups, which makes him a perfect fit for almost any event, especially those audiences that run the full gamut of technical ability. Die-hard techies will enjoy “geeking out” with Kevin, and everyone else will still be fascinated and perhaps a little frightened by what they learn. Our attendees could not have been more pleased with Kevin and his “Art of Deception” keynote.”

Core BTS -PA/NJ/DE Region

“Our company hosts an annual IT Security Conference in Philadelphia and Kevin has been our keynote speaker for two separate events…….[both times] the group was sitting on the edge of their seats during Kevin’s interactive security demonstrations. His Art of Deception presentation caters to both a technical and non-technical audience. His discussion is balanced between hacker techniques and on stage social engineering demonstrations. I highly recommend Kevin to any audience interested in learning how to protect themselves from emerging threats.”

Calgary Board of Education

“The Webinar [on social engineering] with Kevin was fantastic and we have received lots of positive feedback about the event. Kevin is a great speaker with tons of wit and a flair for making points thoughtfully.”
