  • Published on Nov 27, 2017
  • For Google's Security and Privacy Month, we are honored to present the real Frank Abagnale, Renowned Cybersecurity And Fraud Prevention Expert, Bestselling Author & Subject of Catch Me If You Can.
    His transformation from one of the world’s most notorious con men to an international cybersecurity expert trusted by the FBI has been mythologized in film and literature - but the takeaways he shares are the real deal.
    Frank's contributions to the world of security are immeasurable. He has become a hero to hundreds of public and private sector organizations for his indispensable counsel and strategic insight on safeguarding information systems and combating cyber-fraud.
    With an eye on the latest techniques developed by high-tech criminals to deceive and defraud, Frank leaves audiences with a deep understanding of today’s evolving security landscape, and more importantly, a vision of how to make the world a safer place.

    People say he’s a con artist, but for the far majority of his life, he hasn’t been. It’s a great while he’s retired from the game

    I very much enjoyed Mr. Abagnale's presentation. It is to bad Google can not learn the honesty and integrity that this man has learned the hard way, then making the deliberate choice to change and live by them.
    I have to think Google is under the impression that by having Mr. Abagnale come and speak to its employees then putting it up on RU-clip somehow justifies its conduct and improves its image, it does not. I predict Google and other left wing organizations like it will destroy honesty, integrity and morality, it is currently in the middle of completing that task. Actions speak louder than words and Google's actions speak very loud.
    There is an old saying, "you can put lipstick on a pig, but it is still a pig"!
    Google is disgusting, disgraceful, evil criminal organization.
    I'm sorry if I hurt your snowflake feelings but if the shoe fits you get to wear it.

    He is so interesting on so many levels! I just hope he recognizes how God has taken his broken life and turned it around. If it were me, I would be giving God the glory for such a changed life! God blessed him with his wonderful wife and children and his job with the FBI! He has also blessed him with these special gifts! God's nature is to take the broken hearted and mend their lives. We need to be humble enough to see when God is working. I'm not accusing Frank of not being humble, he just needs to go further and recognize that it was God that intervened in his life. As wonderful as his wife must be, she didn't get him out of jail early, it was God.

    I recently heard excerpts from this session. I came hear to see and hear the man speak those words. The 0:27:38 minutes he spoke were some of the most compelling words I have ever listened to. Not a pause, not a stutter and 27 minutes later, I wanted to hear more. Some of the fastest passing minutes I have ever experienced. I'll bet Christmas parties are something else when he attends.

    He clearly isn't unhappy about his fame and notoriety. That was the motivation from the beginning IMO. Before you shoot me down for that comment - remember that the one thing you can say with any certainty about Frank Abagnale is that he is a very convincing liar.

    Well I (for one?) don't believe you AT ALL. I think you are STILL a scam artist, Do your job at the FBI and perform a proper forensic investigation of 911, start with all the physical evidence and failure modes of EVERY structural mechanical element ...or of course just keep breaking FBI protocol and keep scamming the proletariat. You are a piece of shit "frank", know that when you die.

      @/R/The_Donald I meant more YOUR evidence for the claims YOU have made. Because Unfortunately, you can't really trust any info without evidence backing it up.
      You should've learned that in grade school.
      Oh, my bad, sorry I forgot that you haven't been yet.
      Maybe in a year or two.

      Over the past 4 decades, I've conducted over 3,000 lectures
      and written four books on these subjects. During this time,
      I've worked to try to prevent fraud, forgery, cyber crimes,
      embezzlement, identity theft, and other scams perpetrated
      against consumers and small businesses. ~Frank

      And after 3,000 lectures telling the same thing over and over again it becomes "auto suggestion" like.

    IT WAS 1967, 9TH DEC AT LONDON HEATHROW AIRPORT... I WAS 15 YRS 6MONTHS. I DID NOT LOOK OLDER... I WAS 4'11' AND SPECS.. I HAD FLOWN FROM GLASGOW THAT MORNING.. AN AIR HOSTESS APPROACHED, AND INFORMED ME MY FLIGHT TO NEW ZEALAND WAS CANCELLED, HANDED ME A REPLACEMENT, AND A PASS AND TRANSPORTED ME TO THE SKYWAYS HOTEL. YOU WUD NEVER BELEIVE WHAT HAPPENED THAT EVENING! I WAS IN A TAXI CRUISING LONDON. RETURN TO HOTEL I WAS MET BY THE HOSTESS AND ESCORTED TO A LARGE SUITE, COLOUR TELE AND ALL. ROOM SERVICE, AND MY GIFT FOR THE GAB, THINGS A BOY MY AGE OUGHT NEVER TO KNOW. (BUT I DID ALREADY.) I AM 67, STILL IN NZ, TRAVELLED THE WORLD A DOZEN TIMES. RAISED 2 GREAT KIDS, HAVE 7 GRANCHILDREN, SPOKEN NATIONWIDE ON TELEVISION, SPOKEN TO PRISONERS, YOUTH, CHURCHES. BEEN A RETAILER, DRY CLEANER, HAD GREAT MOMENTS THROUGHOUT MY LIFE. BUT, THAT DAY, IN HEATHROW , IN THE SNOW, I DISCOVERED THAT YOU ONLY NEED TO SPEAK QUIETLY, CONFIDENTLY, AND MEASURED, TO HAVE PEOPLE DO THINGS FOR YOU. AND I HAVE HAD AN AWESOME LIFE SO FAR ON THAT, AND A MASSIVE TURN IN MY LIFE, THAT KEEPS ME FROM SCREWING IT UP.... MOSTLY.
