Armen Najarian, CMO, Agari


Patrick Peterson, CEO, Agari


Kevin Poulsen


In the last five years Russian hackers have stolen billions from banks in the US and elsewhere, using everything from sophisticated malware to complex social engineering schemes. North Korean hackers grabbed $81 million from a Bangladesh Bank and another $5 million from a BitCoin exchange in Seoul. Nation states have weaponized hacking to steal secrets, sabotage equipment and influence national elections.

It wasn’t always like this. Decades ago a hacker was more likely to be an overly curious teenager or a broke college student than an international criminal mastermind with an eight-figure bank account. Kevin Poulsen, an ex-hacker turned award-winning journalist, will take you through the stunning revolution that transformed hacking from a computer geek’s pastime into a vast underground industry entangled with organized crime and national intelligence services around the world.
