When it comes to fishing, you can reel in a big catch with the right bait. Cyber “phishing” is no different; all a hacker needs is a clever backstory and a little deceit to turn your employees into suckerfish.
Now more than ever, remote employees are being caught in malicious social engineering nets. Knowing all-too-well that many companies aren’t taking proper security measures and that employees are distracted while working from home, bad actors posing as trusted sources are tricking your staff into clicking infected links and sharing private information to hack their way into your servers.
How do you prevent users from falling hook, line, and sinker? Better protection starts with proper awareness and education.
Kevin Mitnick, the world’s most famous hacker, will use live demonstrations to illustrate how cyber criminals take advantage of your employee’s trust through the art of social engineering.

Not only will listeners hear real-life accounts of Kevin’s penetration testing exploits and see live hacks right before their eyes, but “Hook, Line, and Sinker” will also explore the psychology of deception— from the neuroscience behind why we take the bait to cognitive defenses anyone can use to swim smoothly through an ocean of digital threats.
Formerly one of the FBI’s “Most Wanted” targets for his elite hacking, there’s no one more qualified than Kevin to talk about the art of cyber deception. Your audience will watch in pure astonishment as the most elusive digital trickster in history shares a live look inside the mind of a hacker.
Hackers are a lot like stage magicians. Both capitalize on the art of deception to fool you into seeing what they want you to believe. Whereas magicians use cunning sleight-of-hand tricks to distract from what’s really happening, social engineers hack from behind the digital curtain, gaining stealthy access into your systems.
It only takes one employee to click a malicious link, or one stranger to plug a malware-injected drive into your computer, and it’s showtime for a bad actor. Elite hacks can happen in seconds, and be timed to activate after idle periods on your device. With today’s incredible technology, it’s a case of “Now You See It, Now You Don’t” cyber magic— leaving users none-the-wiser that they were breached.
Who better to demystify this magic than the “Houdini of Hackers,” Kevin Mitnick? Once one of the FBI’s “Most Wanted” due to his elite hacking, today, Kevin is one of the good guys, helping organizations across the globe improve their security posture and awareness. Over 1 million people take part in Kevin Mitnick Security Awareness Training every year.
In this technological magic show, your audience will be spellbound as the most elusive digital trickster in history shares a live look inside the mind of a 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.
On the playing field of cybersecurity keynotes, others just talk about the game, while Kevin Mitnick actually plays. And, boy… does he play hard. In fact, Kevin was once on the FBI’s “Most Wanted” list for hacking into 40 major corporations just for the fun of it.. There’s no one more qualified than Kevin to talk about the art of cyber deception. Through live demonstrations, Kevin illustrates exactly how cybercriminals take advantage of your employee’s trust through the art of social engineering.
Today, Kevin ethically hacks – for a living – as the CEO for the globally-renowned cybersecurity corporation: Mitnick Security. Kevin also serves as the Chief Hacking Officer at KnowBe4, and his Kevin’s Security Awareness Training (KMSAT) program is virtually attended by over 1 million people every year.
This acclaimed presentation demystifies today’s latest cyber threats. These are the risks that many don’t even know exist! Are you ready to open your audiences’ eyes to just how easily anyone can be tricked into handing over the keys to the kingdom?
Watch in pure amazement as the most elusive digital trickster in history shares a live look 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.
