Overview

Every few months, we hear about a major hack that has exposed vulnerabilities in major companies or institutions. But few of us have a good grasp of how hacking really works and just how different it is from the movies.

Kevin Mitnick is a self-taught tech genius who went from a child prodigy to the world's most notorious hacker. For years, Mitnick hacked repeatedly into the networks of multi-billion dollar companies, toyed with the FBI, and evaded arrest – all just for fun.

Now a respected tech consultant who helps the world's biggest companies test security vulnerabilities, Mitnick shares his life story, taking us deep into the world of a hacker gone good.

"I went to prison for my hacking. Now people hire me to do the same things I went to prison for, but in a legal and beneficial way."
