Virtually everyone in technology knows about Kevin Mitnick, who in the 1970s, ‘80s and ‘90s was a notorious fugitive hacker on the run from the FBI.
Most experts also know that he’s made his living since being released from prison as a security consultant.
Yet he still hacks for a living. Sort of.
Minick specializes in making clients think about things they hadn’t thought of before. For example, some people seeking privacy might buy a “burner phone”—a phone purchased without a contract for privacy. But Mitnick points out that even buying a secure device can compromise your privacy, given that the purchase can be identified and tracked down because of the Uber you took or the rental car you rented.
Lots of good tips from a certified hacker.
