Frank Abagnale: Catch him if you can, RSA

The critics in this story are dead wrong. I've seen Frank Abagnale's talk. His personal history is insightful, stimulating and well worth a presentation to computer security professionals.

In IT, we often forget the human element of information manipulation amidst the sophisticated technical schemes of hackers. Real pro's focus on this social engineering and don't need a vast array of technical know-how to compromise systems or data. We would all do well to hear the story of Mr. Abagnale, personally and professionally, as the use of these techniques becomes more prevalent.
