CNN Tech’s Laurie Segall Interviews Chris Hadnagy
Chris Hadnagy is a social engineer who uses his hacking skills to uncover the identities…
The Innocent Lives Foundation started with the desire to make a positive impact on behalf of children. Our Executive Director, Chris Hadnagy, in connection with work that he was doing for his company Social-Engineer, LLC, had the opportunity to work on a few cases that helped track and capture predators who trafficked children and committed other crimes. Some of these cases hit him very hard. He saw the impact that these crimes had on innocent people, and he wanted to do something about it.
Chris is a leader in the white hat hacker community, and this community has nearly limitless talents and abilities to locate people anywhere they hide. Chris knew with additional resources he could help many more victims. In addition to his resources in the technology and social engineering industries, he assembled a group that includes Neil Fallon, lead singer of the rock band Clutch, Tim Maloney, a lawyer experienced in forming and representing non-profits and technology based businesses, and Rob Berra, a former military officer now experienced in mapping networks of human traffickers in the United States. What they all had in common was a desire to use their unique talents and networks to address these problems and prevent crimes against future victims – that day The ILF was born.
