Frank Abagnale’s transformation from one of the world’s most notorious con men to a highly sought-after international cybercrime and fraud prevention consultant is remarkable.

He captivates audiences by drawing on his best sellers Scam Me If You CanThe Art of the Steal, and Stealing Your Life. He takes you behind the scenes to reveal simple strategies that can thwart today’s cyber criminals. Today his perspective and counsel have guided not only the FBI but more than half of the Fortune 500 companies in America.

Abagnale keeps a keen eye on the latest techniques developed by high-tech criminals to deceive and steal.

But more importantly, he shares his vision of how to make the world a safer place.

“I did not make this film about Frank Abagnale because of what he did… but because of what he has done with his life the past 30 years.”– Steven Spielberg.

Abagnale’s unique expertise and first-hand experience have made his contributions to the world of cyber security immeasurable. The FBI and more than 14,000 financial institutions, corporations, and government agencies worldwide utilize Abagnale’s fraud prevention programs. Although most of his work is with the U.S. government, he refuses to be paid for it. He is a premier cyber security speaker, appearing at the FBI Academy and Bureau field offices and as a faculty member at the National Advocacy Center.

A best-selling author of five books, including the most recent Scam Me If You Can: Simple Strategies to Outsmart Today’s Ripoff Artists, Abagnale has also contributed articles for ThreatAdviceFinancial Fraud Law Report, and USA Today.
