Catch Me If You Can | Frank Abagnale | Talks at Google
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.

    I saw you yesterday at the Yonge/Bloor subway station in Toronto. I yelled out "Look! Isn't that Ray Bradbury ... Oh wait. I think that's a Jewish lawyer from New York City." Of course you were neither. That was you Frank. I loved that movie "Catch Me If You Can" It was of course a bad joke. No intention to insult. But I have a lot of David Cronenberg extras from his movie Scanners filling the room in my head driving me nutso.

    Incredible piece of information. Genuine man. Serving his country for over 40 years. Did not praise his acts even once. What he told about his wife and children explains his high morals and characters. I did not see any movie on him but he even explained that what is not real in the movie. We could make take away some really good life lessons from this talk. spoke both on the good and dark sides of technology. Everyone should spend an effort to protect their identity. Respect for Frank.

    so that guy did absolutely what he wanted for decades, trolling everybody so hard ... cheated as much as imaginably possible ... and still he is married to his only one wife for 40+ years, allegedly not cheating on her even once ... That kinda proofs that cheating is not equal to cheating in general, and also personal stance of morales can bring forth some seemingly incoherent dependencies. I enjoyed the talk very much, was really interesting to listen to a life story of a man that undoubtly made his extraordinary way in life!

If man and wife really become ONE - and this not in carnal meaning ! - they together conquer just every difficulties... and will have children according to God's will and pleasure. Mankind should find back to THIS KIND of godly values !! Marantha !! Amen !!

    I wonder if there's any people from the blm crowd watching this? Hearing how impactful it was to have an intact nuclear family and 2 parents to count on for different reasons as opposed to trying to abolish it because it's become part of the culture and would take effort and change on their part to get back to that point? "I was not brilliant or a genius....i was just a child.... because of i was brilliant or a genius i don't think i would need to break the law to get by...", certainly resignates with how often we hear crime excused with the whole "he did what he had to do to get by" justifications. The fact he takes full responsibility for his crimes and understands its not about trying to get away with them or make excuses for why he wasn't in the wrong when he clearly was, and knows its about how his actions thereafter spoke to his integrity instead of screaming words and promises that never get backed up or fulfilled. That's essentially what being a grown up entails and how to show maturity....holding yourself accountable, taking responsibility, and admitting fault even when it's hard to do.
