Frank M. Ahearn

Most recently, I spoke at the me-Convention (Mercedes-Benz and SXSW) in Frankfurt. This talk was different than usual, typically I speak about how to disappear, new/fake identities, pseudocide, and other related disappearing topics. The me-Convention talk was, "Why Your Digital Footprint Is Bigger Than You Think, and Why It Matters." 


I found it challenging to come up with the message I wanted to convey. However, while talking out loud in front of my mirror, I realized that I should share how I affected peoples lives by accessing their digital footprints. Therefore, I approached the talk from the perspective of a social engineer (extracts information) and skip-tracer (finds people) not a privacy consultant. What I found interesting was I had to admit to many of the privacy violations I committed while hunting people.

Talking About Digital Footprints

My talks are very personal, where I share cases of real people. One could say they are also a mix of entertaining, intriguing, shocking, and educating. Everyone walks away with a better understanding of how to protect their privacy.
