Frank Abagnale, renowned cyber security and fraud-prevention expert, best-selling author, and subject of the movie "Catch Me If You Can," will address EUFMC as the featured dinner speaker during the 64th annual Electric Utility Fleet Managers Conference, June 4-7, 2017, at the Williamsburg Lodge and Conference Center in Williamsburg, Va.

Abagnale is one of the world's most respected authorities on forgery, embezzlement, and secure documents.

His deep expertise began more than 45 years ago when he was one of the world's most famous confidence men.

His exploits are depicted graphically in his best-selling book "Catch Me If You Can," and the film of the same name directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Leonardo DeCaprio.

Apprehended by the French police when he was 21, Abagnale served time in French, Swedish, and U. S. prisons.

After five years, he was released on the condition that he would help the federal government, without remuneration, by teaching and assisting federal law enforcement agencies.

Abagnale has now been associated with the FBI for more than four decades, and his fraud-prevention programs are used by more than 14,000 financial institutions, corporations, and law-enforcement agencies.
