Hackers and Employment
...I recently got an email from Avaya, one of whose employees, Tom Porter, was leading a security team at the World Cup. The email proudly advertises Porter as a "a former hacker [who] got into the U.S. government database on Roswell in the early 90s." Now he has been able to have a highly visible and well paying job as chief of Internet security for FIFA and Avaya.
As soon as I got this email, I recalled the case of Frank Abagnale, Jr., the fraudster whose life was made into the movie Catch Me If You Can.
And, I admit, I got angry. I want to tell you why. Line56.com: Hackers and Employment
