HELPING TO KEEP PEOPLE SAFE
Just a couple of guys who are enjoying helping people! Through making things fun and entertaining, we are making people engage with a serious subject.
I'm Paul Newton, creator of MentalTheft, I'm a Magician, a Mind Reader and a Hypnotist.
For years I have made my living using my skills to entertain and mess with peoples heads at parties, weddings, corporate events and in stage shows.
It was when I was stealing PINs and other personal details at a military event that it was pointed out to me how much impact I could have:
“Paul, have you thought about the security implications your skills could have on most of the organisations in this country? Maybe even in the world?”
This was when MentalTheft was born.
I am an extremely protective person - I love to keep people safe from nasty people. Now I get to help people understand the threats and put them in touch with the people and solutions that can keep them safe.
MD of MentalTheft
I work as the marketing manager for an IT company providing business software. I know how to communicate to people about their need for a very boring subject matter!
As a photographer and marketing person, my work in communication, media and understanding people has helped to propel the message of MentalTheft.
Both directly and indirectly, MentalTheft has become a marketing engine for an entire industry.
Despite being the technical side of MentalTheft, I am not a hacker. But I am passionate about helping those white hat hackers work with people who don't even know that they need them!
