Experts, Testimony, Charlatans, & Intelligence Committee’s

with 3 comments

Recently, an allegation was made by our favourite plagiarist and wantonly frivolous filer of law suits, Greg Evans, that he was going to be testifying before Congress on Cyber Security and Sino-US relations.

I know… I can’t believe this either…

However, it is entirely possible that Evans has managed to bamboozle the US House of Representatives/Congress into believing that he is in fact an expert on anything to do with cyber security.

“How did this happen?” You ask?

Well, it is possible that they saw him on FOX news or perhaps CNN of late. Perhaps his minions finally reached out to the right people who have access to the government.. Either way, we all know within the security community a couple of things that make this all the more plausible.

  1. Evans always is pimping his “cred” with all those self released PR pieces (Worlds #1 hacker)
  2. Congress Critters aren’t all that tech savvy for the most part and are easily distracted by laser pointers on the floor.

So, we do have a potential situation if indeed Evans is not just blowing smoke up our collective asses here on Twitter.

I would hope that the House Intelligence committee would in fact vet their speakers a bit better. In an effort to insure that they at least get some perspective on Mr. Evans, I have crafted the email shown above and asked Rep. Michael Rogers (Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee) to have a look into who he may in fact have planned to speak in the near future. Here is his contact information for you all out there who care to drop him a line and beg the same of him.

We live in “Interesting Times” as the Chinese say and we certainly do not need to have congress led further astray by those without the experience in the subject matters at hand. Lets hope that the House looks into Evans’ history and decides that he is not a subject matter expert on any of the topics at hand.

EDIT: It seems that Evans is not speaking/testifying at a hearing per sources connected to the HPSCI. However, Evans may be speaking to individual congress critters, so, still email the HPSCI to get the message out to them. They then in turn can locate who may be in fact meeting with Evans.. If indeed there is any meeting at all.

  2. This has the potential to cause damage if he comes out with the old ‘Cyber Pearl Harbour’/’cyber weapons’ line, which is what our non-technical politicians are dying to hear. We should always publicly criticise and call bullshit on anything cybersecurity-related we know is factually incorrect.
    On a brighter note, it seems to be already common knowledge he’s a fake, as per the top Google search results.

  3. As a security professional, or just a well rounded person, I’m really embarrased for this guy. He claims to own two publically traded companies who’s stock is selling at .0001 a share. He’s clearly a con man. What’s concerning is that he SHOULD be a really bad one. Unfortunatly he’s getting some visibility.

    let’s get this guy…
