What is MentalTheft?

The truth is, cybersecurity is a dark, confusing and murky world of techno geeks that the average person, employee or even business owner cannot fathom. So they may pay some lip service, but in reality they ignore it and hope it goes away. 

Right up until they have a £10,000,000 bill to pay, or have had thousands of pounds stolen. Then they pay pretty strong attention to it. 

MentalTheft has entertainment and engagement at its core. We know how to make people listen! There are a band of security and cyber experts chomping at the bit to keep everyone safe, but their message just isn't getting out there. MentalTheft is here to engage with real people, so that they understand the threat; we then connect them with the solutions that are going to help to keep them safe. 

Engaging and Entertaining...

“Saw Paul give a show/talk about security, he presents in a very engaging and entertaining way how easy it is to lose personal information and how vulnerable even big and "secure" businesses are.”​

—  Lucy Rumming, Managing Director at The Willows Insurance Services

Security of the Mind


In my career, I have robbed jewellers, stolen secrets and hypnotized unsuspecting victims. I am not a master criminal, I am a hypnotist, mind reader and magician. But what if I were the enemy? What could I achieve?


As an expert in psychometrics, body language and sleight of hand I provide the security and military world with insight and training so that they can help to secure the weakest link in the chain of security - the human mind. 


*Did I seriously just say Sh1t in the title? 

Its hard hitting, people take notice. But there's more to it than that. In the early days of computing people used passwords such as God, but these days a lot of people use swearwords - common passwords are the easiest to crack. People also often change letters for numbers that look similar, thinking that these are more difficult to hack. They are not! So although this is a provocative title to my talks, it really does have a strong foundation in what I do.
