Kevin is now a trusted security consultant to the Fortune 500 and governments worldwide. Kevin and the Global Ghost Team™ now maintain a 100 percent successful track record of being able to penetrate the security of any system they are paid to hack into, using a combination of technical exploits and social engineering. As CEO and chief "white hat" hacker at one of the most advanced boutique security firms in the world, Kevin mentors leaders, executives, and staff on both the theory and practice of social engineering, topics on which he is the leading global authority. Kevin also helps consumers—from students to retirees— learn how to protect their information and themselves from harm, using understandable terms and a friendly approach.

At secureCIO Dallas, a panel of leading CIOs moderated by Scott Shuster, will share and explore how CIOs can be successful in their role.
