Kick-Start Sessions

Make history with us as we host a groundbreaking session where the architect of a billion-dollar identity heist and the U.S. Secret Service Agent who apprehended him unite for the first time.

In this revealing session, delve into the life of an identity theft prodigy and kingpin who, at just 15 years old, embarked on one of cybercrime's most nefarious journeys. Learn how this speaker masterminded one of the largest identity thefts in U.S. history, compromising over 200 million accounts and causing damages beyond $1.2 billion. Speakers will also uncover the unsung heroics of the Secret Service Agent who lead and orchestrated a covert operation, even collaborated with a British felon, to entice this fraudster onto U.S. territory and mitigate further threats to American citizens.

Now, with our speaker’s remorseful transformation into an ally, wielding deep dark web connections to combat fraud, this panel will shed light on today's cyber fraud dynamics and share strategies to fortify our industry.
