MICHAEL CALCE
Entrepreneur, Public Speaker, White Hat Hacker and Author.

Michael Calce

 

It’s not uncommon for a fifteen-year-old boy to get into a little trouble every once in a while. But it’s a lot less common for that trouble to end up being a cyber attack that stops multi-billion dollar companies in their tracks. Michael “MafiaBoy” Calce became a household name when he launched a series of successful attacks against large commercial websites such as eBay, Amazon, ETrade and even CNN. That hack made such a huge impact that the US federal government tracked him down and took him to trial.

Today, Michael Calce is an entrepreneur, public speaker, white hat hacker and author who uses the lessons he learned to continue teaching about the world of cyber security today. His company, Optimal Secure, is a Montreal-based cyber security firm specializing in penetration testing and it’s one part of his continuous effort to keep people informed about the reality of cyber attacks and how they can defend themselves.
