Bryan Seely is a world-famous cyber security expert, ethical hacker, author and former U.S. Marine. Seely became one of the most famous hackers in 2014 when he became the only person to ever wiretap the United States Secret Service and FBI. Shockingly he told the 2 agencies before he was caught, and instead of being sent to maximum security prison, the Secret Service called him a hero and praised his courage and integrity.

Since then Seely has written a book, uncovered 20+ million Social Security Numbers, and then led him to appear on The Lead with Jake Tapper. He found several high-profile flaws at Linkedin.com and was able to attract the attention of Texas billionaire & Shark Tank star Mark Cuban who publicly endorses his skills and integrity.

Later that year Seely and another security expert de-anonymized the highly valued mobile app, Secret. He was on the front page of Wired.com, CNNMoney, CNET, Forbes and the Washington Post — all in the same day. Soon after, Bryan wrote a book about a relatively unknown type of consumer fraud in his book, Cyber Fraud: The Web of Lies which is available on Amazon.
