Bryan Seely is a world-famous cyber security expert, ethical hacker, TEDx speaker, author and former U.S. Marine. Seely is known for intercepting calls to the United States Secret Service and FBI by hacking Google Maps in early 2014, but rather than spending time in prison, he was called a hero and moved on to bigger and better things. A few months later, he found an exploit in LinkedIn.com and helped the company resolve it.
In August of 2014, Seely and another security expert de-anonymized the highly valued mobile app, Secret. He was on the front page of Wired.com, CNNMoney, CNET, Forbes and the Washington Post — all in the same day. The high profile hacking of Secret.ly landed Seely a consulting gig with Secret less than a week later, and Mark Cuban personally contacted the duo to provide mobile application security/ethical hacking services for his newest tech investment, Cyberdust.
In a rare interview, Mark Cuban spoke with NYTimes best-selling author and journalist Brian Krebs and provided a glowing endorsement of Seely and his team. “I like working with them. They look to help rather than exploit. We have learned from them and I think their experience will be valuable to other app publishers and networks as well.”
Seely, based in Seattle, then helped reveal a huge number of data breaches at several hundred major institutions which prevented the theft/loss of substantial amounts of money and information; including over 9 million social security numbers, and $23 billion in managed funds at MBIA.
Seely currently runs his own security company and blog, SeelySecurity.com. He is also the Chief Information Security officer of J4 Capital which is an advanced financial services company specializing in market analysis and forecasting.
Bryan Seely is speaking on the main stage on cyber security at the Global Fund Forum hedge fund conference in Bermuda on June 23rd, and teaching a cyber-security workshop on the 24th. He is also ramping up promotion of his new book titled Cyber Fraud: The Web of Lies in which Seely details his unbelievable story of how he intercepted calls to the Secret Service and FBI without permission, yet did not spend one minute in jail. The release date is July 15th, and he looks forward to the various radio and national television programs that have booked him to speak about the book.
