I have never seen or worked with an “Ex Hacker”. The ‘get out of prison and get a cushy consulting job’ pipeline is extremely overblown. Black hats that got caught and did time in prison are most likely not doing any high-level, ground-breaking stuff. Companies aren’t jumping over themselves to hire these individuals with criminal backgrounds. Obviously there’s outliers but it’s definitely not as common as some people think.
