Mafiaboy, Convicted Hacker - To Speak!

In 2000, several big player websites were brought to an astonishing halt for hours causing panic everywhere from the White House to suburbia and around the world. CNN, Amazon, Yahoo, Dell, the list goes on…

After two months and hundreds of hours of wiretapping, the FBI and RCMP staged a late-night raid to apprehend the most wanted man in cyberspace - a 15-year-old kid - Mafiaboy.

After serving time, and growing up a little more, Mafiaboy, a.k.a. Michael Calce figured out a way to use his hacker brains in a more savvy (not to mention legal) way.

Today, 16 years later, Calce works as a cybersecurity consultant for major banks and corporations, advising them on how to protect themselves from what history dictates that he does best.

The ISA Edmonton Section and the ISA Automation Expo & Conference (AEC) Team is excited to announce that Calce will be a headliner at this April’s event!

Hear first-hand from Calce who plans to: share his story, speak about current events related to cybersecurity, give us an inside look at the mind of a hacker, offer his top five security recommendations and do a live demo. After his presentation there will be a formal question and answer period, and following this he will stick around to chat with attendees one on one.

This will be a by invitation only event. Sponsor companies and exhibiting companies will be given the first right of refusal on purchasing a table. More details to come in the New Year!
