Frank Abagnale provides entertaining insight into his life as the notorious imposter of the 1960s; a thrilling story told in the award-winning movie and Broadway musical, Catch Me If You Can. By age 21, Abagnale was known as America's most gifted con man, successfully impersonating an airline pilot, pediatrician, stockbroker, college professor, and assistant attorney general, all while cashing $2.5 million in forged checks. You will experience an emotional roller coaster ride as Frank Abagnale describes his escapades and reveals how he learned to live on the right side of the law.

Frank Abagnale will then bring you up-to-date on the latest techniques and methods used in the crime of identity theft. Abagnale will give you an insider's knowledge of the critically important topic of identity management. Based on his best-selling book, Stealing Your Life, chosen as one of the Top 30 Best Business Books for 2007, he will provide an invaluable and in-depth look at the business of identity theft, breaches, and social media today.
