Former United States Most Wanted, Brett Johnson, referred to by the United States Secret Service as The Original Internet Godfather has been a central figure in the cybercrime world for over 20 years. Mr. Johnson built and was the leader of ShadowCrew, the precursor to today’s darknet markets. He was instrumental in developing many areas of online fraud while helping design, implement, and refine modern Identity Theft, Account Take Over Fraud, Card Not Present Fraud, IRS Tax Fraud, and countless other social engineering attacks, breaches, and hacking operations.
Upon his capture, the United States Secret Service hired Mr. Johnson to work as a consultant and informant. Johnson worked with the Secret Service for several months before going on a cross-country crime spree, being placed on the US Most Wanted List, being captured again, sent to prison, escaping prison, being captured yet again, and finally accepting responsibility for his actions.
Today, Brett works as a security consultant and public speaker. He is one of the world's foremost authorities on cybercrime and identity theft. During 2017, Mr. Johnson was Keynote Speaker at over 30 conferences worldwide.
