Hackers are all about curiosity, and security is just a feeling | Chris Nickerson | TEDxFultonStreet


Chris offers a peek inside the mind and world of hackers — people who like to tinker, usually for public benefit. Want to feel more secure? Know what it takes to hack your cell phone? Why don't corporations listen when they're warned? Oh, yeah, and have you learned how to pick locks yet? Remember to face the world as a child does - with with the wonder of a child discovering a new thing for the first time.

Chris Nickerson is a professional attacker - a security specialist, he helps corporations and individuals to handle the challenges of physical and digital intrusion. A longtime part of hacker conferences DEFCON, 2600, and others, Chris is currently the CEO of Lares Consulting.
