Brian Seely, Cyber Security Expert - Ethical Hacker

Bryan Seely is a world famous cyber security expert, ethical hacker, author and former U.S. Marine. Seely is known for intercepting calls to the United States Secret Service and FBI by hacking Google Maps in early 2014, but rather than spending time in prison he was called a hero and moved on to bigger and better things. A few months later, he found an exploit in and helped the company resolve it.

In August of 2014, Seely and another security expert de-anonymized the highly valued mobile app, Secret. He was on the front page of, CNNMoney, CNET, Forbes and the Washington Post — all in the same day. The high profile hacking of Secret landed Seely a consulting gig with Secret less than a week later, and Mark Cuban personally contacted the duo to provide mobile application security/ethical hacking services for his newest tech investment, Cyberdust.

Bryan Seely's new book is Cyber Fraud: The Web of Lies, in which Seely details his unbelievable story of how he intercepted calls to the Secret Service and FBI without permission, yet did not spend one minute in jail.
