To stop a hacker, it makes sense to think like a hacker. That’s why I’m excited to announce that Kevin Mitnick, known as the world’s most famous hacker, will give the closing keynote speech on May 19 at Bloxfest, the first customer conference from Infoblox.
Once on the FBI’s Most Wanted list because of exploits that included hacking into 40 major corporations, Mitnick turned from a black hat to a white hat and is now a trusted security consultant to companies and governments worldwide. Mitnick and his company, The Global Ghost Team™, have maintained a perfect track record of hacking into any system they are paid to penetrate, using a combination of technical exploits and social engineering.
Mitnick is one of the world’s top cybersecurity speakers, and has been a commentator, security analyst, or interview subject on CNN, CNBC, Al Jazeera, FOX News, CBC, BBC, Radio Moscow, Tech TV, National Public Radio, Good Morning America, and 60 minutes – to name a few. He has written three books, including his autobiography – “Ghost in the Wires: My Adventures as the World’s Most Wanted Hacker,” a New York Times bestseller.
In his keynote, Mitnick will give a guided tour, full of real-world examples, on how hackers think and how they ply their tradecraft. He will explain how to see an organization through a hacker’s eyes, while sharing insights for strengthening defenses through concrete and actionable best practices.
Set for May 17-19 at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts, Bloxfest is your chance to learn and share best practices around managing networks, as well as related topics such as security, cloud and automation. In addition to daily keynotes on the main stage, there will be more than 60 track sessions and many opportunities for informal mingling.
