57724 ratings | 3677576 views
For Google's Security and Privacy Month, we are honored to present the real Frank Abagnale, Renowned Cybersecurity And Fraud Prevention Expert, Bestselling Author & Subject of Catch Me If You Can. His transformation from one of the world’s most notorious con men to an international cybersecurity expert trusted by the FBI has been mythologized in film and literature – but the takeaways he shares are the real deal. Frank's contributions to the world of security are immeasurable. He has become a hero to hundreds of public and private sector organizations for his indispensable counsel and strategic insight on safeguarding information systems and combating cyber-fraud. With an eye on the latest techniques developed by high-tech criminals to deceive and defraud, Frank leaves audiences with a deep understanding of today’s evolving security landscape, and more importantly, a vision of how to make the world a safer place.

25:23 because it is utter bullshit and it pays well. You never did all of the illegal and awful things in the film. You have helped to make many millions though for the film and also for positive FBI thoughts

You know many people turned out to be the lowest of the low bottom feeders to do a job in the FBI - a twisted devious unscrupulous agency. He plays a charming bad boy turned good - nah, he is still playing the game, this time for the other side, he will do it with the same conviction - just like a criminal and makes it sound so good....... he is still playing the people around him even now.

And all this was triggered because he was shocked by the news of his parents getting divorced...amazing. How did his 3 siblings take the news? Changing the subject, towards the end he paints a scary picture of cyber-tech in the future... :-0

I can't even say what I did yesterday that fluently
Given the poverty that the United States FORCED upon you, Frank, and your family, by doing NOTHING to stop your birth nor your breeders' (parents') births, you SHOULD have not risked your freedom scamming corporations. You should have just taken machines guns and gunned down all the capitalist hypocrites.
If you really are a free thinking and a sensible man (or any person) and you want to feel safe and closer to God. Then you cannot ever do this through practising Christianity or through any religion; because all religions are led by the fake prophets who will mislead you: – There is one way and that is through only Immanuel alone (the anointed one) also called Jesus. Here then is a brief summary from his many words of teaching... “God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” – (John 4: 24) – “Beware of false prophets; men who come to you dressed up as sheep while underneath they are savage wolves. You will recognize them by the fruits they bear.” – (Matthew 7: 15-16) – “The teaching that I give is not my own; it is the teaching of him who sent me. Whoever has the will to do the will of God shall know whether my teaching comes from him or is merely my own.” – (John 7: 16-17) – “Do not call any man on earth ‘father’; for you have one Father and he is in heaven. Nor must you be called ‘teacher’; you have one Teacher, the Messiah.” – (Matthew 23: 9-10) – “The thief comes only to steal, to kill, to destroy; I have come that men may have life, and may have it in all its fullness.” – (John 10: 10) – “Take care that no one misleads you: For many will come claiming my name…” – (Matthew 24: 4) – “Many false prophets will arise, and will mislead many; and as lawlessness spreads, men’s love for one another will grow cold. But the man who holds out to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the Kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the earth as a testimony to all nations; and then the end will come.” – (Matthew 24: 11-14) – “I am the way; I am the truth and I am life; no one comes to the Father except by me. If you knew me you would know my Father too.” – (John 14: 6-7) – “When you pray, go into a room by yourself, and shut the door. Pray to your Father who is there in the secret place; and your Father who sees what is secret will reward you. In your prayers do not go babbling on like the heathen, who imagine that the more they say the more likely they are to be heard. Do not imitate them. Your Father knows what your needs are before you ask him. This is how you should pray: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, Your kingdom come; your will be done, on earth as in heaven, Give us today our daily bread, And forgive us the wrong we have done, as we have forgiven those who have wronged us. And do not bring us to the test, but save us from the evil one. For yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory, for ever. Amen. For if you forgive others the wrongs they have done, your heavenly Father will also forgive you; but if you do not forgive others, then the wrongs you have done will not be forgiven by your Father.” – (Matthew 6: 6-15) – “Pass no judgement, and you will not be judged. For as you judge others, so you will yourselves be judged, and whatever measure you deal out to others will be dealt back to you.” – (Matthew 7: 1-2) – “Truly I tell you; if anyone obeys my teaching he shall never know what it is to die.” – (John 8: 51) – “Always treat others as you would like them to treat you: that is the Law and the Prophets. Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life and only a few find it.” – (Matthew 7: 12-14) – “I am the gate; anyone who comes into the fold through me shall be safe.” – (John 10: 9) – “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.” – (Matthew 7: 21) – “I am the resurrection and I am life. If a man has faith in me, even though he dies, he shall come to life; and no one who is alive and has faith shall ever die.” – (John 11: 25-26) – “I have not come to judge the world, but to save the world” – (John 12: 47) – “Whoever then will acknowledge me before men, I will acknowledge him before my Father in heaven; and whoever disowns me before men, I will disown him before my Father in heaven.” – (Matthew 10: 32-34) – “Someone said to him, ‘your mother and brothers are here outside; they want to speak to you.’ Jesus turned to the man who brought the message, and said, ‘Who is my mother? Who are my brothers?’ and pointing to the disciples, he said, ‘Here are my mother and my brothers. Whoever does the will of my heavenly Father is my brother, my sister, my mother.’” – (Matthew 12: 47-50) – “The disciples came and asked Jesus, ‘Who, then, is the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven?’ He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. And he said: ‘Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of Heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven. And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me. If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, It would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea. Woe to the world because of the things that cause people to stumble! Such things must come, but woe to the person through whom they come!’” – (Matthew 18: 1-7) – “Where two or three have met together in my name, I am there among them.” – (Matthew 18: 20) – “An expert in the law, [a leading religious Pharisee] tested him with this question: ‘Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?’ He answered, ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind. That is the greatest commandment. It comes first. The second is like it: Love your neighbour as yourself. Everything in the Law and the Prophets hangs on these two commandments.’” – (Matthew 22: 35-40) – “There is no greater love than this, that a man should lay down his life for his friends.” – (John 15: 13) – "Stay awake, and pray that you may be spared the test: The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak." – (Matthew 26: 41) – “Teach them to observe all that I have commanded you. And be assured, I am with you always, to the end of time.” – (Matthew 28: 20) – “One of the criminals who hung there also mocked and taunted him: ‘Aren’t you the Messiah? Save yourself, and us!’ But the other criminal rebuked him. ‘Have you no fear of God? You are under the same sentence as he. For us it is plain justice; we are paying the price for our misdeeds; but this man has done nothing wrong.’ And he said, ‘Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.’ He answered, “I tell you this: today you shall be with me in Paradise.’” – (Luke 23: 39-43) – “For it is my Father’s will that everyone who looks upon the Son and puts his faith in him shall possess eternal life; and I will raise him up on the last day” – (John 6: 40) – Yours always, in true Spirit and in our one given prayer, 2gointruth, Saturday the 12th of January, 2019: – (Matthew 5:14-16) – Where every minute (of both day and night) can be vital, and can thus be a new and a better beginning for any one of us…

123carol321 (16 days ago)
This guy is a legend. Honestly, i dont even know what to say. In about 30 minutes he was able to tell his life story and make me cry when he talked about his dad with such profund respect and love, to then being so humble about himself and also giving really good advice on how we should treat our parents... What he said about technology is also very true and extremely important - we create all these great ways to improve our lives, but we need to see further than just the positive uses for the new tech, we need to think of how these things might affect us on the negative side and how to prevent, control and stop that. I am so happy i watched this today.
Will Johnson (16 days ago)
I want to make one thing clear: The real Frank was nothing like Hollywood portrays in the Hit; Catch Me If You Can. He was writing bad checks and forging checks and other documents at a time when it was easiest. He has no real value to society, I'm not sure why he was even let out: What? You say he was let out to assist the FBI with something the y needed no assistance with? BS
Daniel Jeffery (17 days ago)
Yeah I don't trust this guy :P I think he paints a picture of a world that isn't accurate where FBI agents and CIA agents are uniformly ethical and honest people. In all honesty it wouldn't surprise me if he was still playing the same game on a whole new arena. He's obviously very intelligent so he never really needed to do what he was doing, I think he did it for the thrill of it

Steven Wright and Frank Abagnale are the same person!! that's why google had to make him tell his story, I swear to god, same mannerisms, same eyeball movement, google some of Steven's amazing deadpan stand up, and compare him with this guy, Frank..oh my god, or they both have A.S.P.D.!..for sure Franks got it, absolutely no emotion, or remorse, brilliant, but devoid of feeling.

He could've just started a retail store, talked the bank into lending him 100% of the startup money, then sold the stock in the store for cash, and claimed it stolen, and collected the insurance. If he were smarter he could've done more damage.

Christopher G. (1 month ago)
Wow, the fact he never saw his father again really differs from the movie where one of the subplots is Frank trying to get back to the way things were before his father got into debt over taxes and his parents divorced (eg- buying his dad a Cadillac and telling him to go pick up his mom and take her for a ride in it).

Why would anyone with real skill wanting to join governmental bureaucracy, other than job security, it doesn’t make sense to me. When I attended college in engineering field back in the 80s, no one in right mind seemed interested in government position, some institution offered $1,000 cash incentive per month until graduation, and we turned it down. Now, the quality job or hope of rewarding career is gone in America, that young people will put up with 10,000:1 entry competition, is just unbelievable. If old people wanting to get in line for government job, make perfect sense, but the young ones? What is happening to America?
