Hector Monsegur

Controversial Hacker & Co-founder of LulzSec

Biography

KNOW your enemy.

The recent onslaught of high profile cyber attacks on Equifax, Yahoo, and the CIA shows just how vulnerable EVERYONE is to being hacked.

All the aforementioned had highly educated staff and an ample budget but they were missing an essential component — they did not “KNOW” their enemy. Knowing the mindset and process of a hacker is the decisive factor in cybersecurity.

Meet Hector Monsegur, the de facto head of Anonymous, who — by himself — breached the cybersecurity systems of major corporations and governments around the globe. The security firms that were responsible for protecting News Corp, PayPal, VISA, Mastercard, Nintendo, PBS and many government contractors all were successfully hacked by Hector. Read More >

How is it possible that a lone operator, living in the NY projects, who only completed six months of the 9th grade could do this?

This is the insider knowledge that Hector will share when he speaks to his clients and corporations — his insights have been game changing to the Fortune 500 companies and the US government he has shared his secrets with.

After being caught by the FBI — Hector exchanged his "black hat" for a "white hat" and helped the FBI prevent more than 300 cyber-attacks on systems controlled by the military and NASA.

Hector’s ability to take your team into the mindset of the hacker — in a way that’s accessible to everyone — empowers his clients to be proactive at protecting themselves. He will share his secrets of how hackers choose their targets, why hacking appeals to people, how hacking tools work, and how you and your company can protect yourself from vulnerability.

Monsegur is currently Director of Assessment Services at Rhino Security Labs, with large corporations and governments as his clients, while developing a book and film on his life. Read Less ^
