Meet The Brain Hacker

The Brainisphere was launched by Neal O’Farrell, an award-winning cybersecurity expert who hacked his own brain – used his decades of hacking skills to try to understand his decades of mental illnesses.

Instead, he stumbled across the Brainisphere and an exciting new way to view brain health as the key to unlocking the best possible life.

He’s currently leading a United Nations effort to help make communities around the world more emotionally and psychologically resilient to growing disasters, crises, and climate change. And focusing specifically on teens.

He created the PsyberResilience Project, a program to help make cybersecurity professionals, the world’s digital first responders, more psychologically resilient to the chronic stress and burnout often experienced in that field.

And in a first of its kind, Neal is teaching the psychology of cybercrime, and the role of the human mind in cybersecurity, as part of a Bachelor of Science in Cybersecurity degree program at Northern Kentucky University.

He also led a ground-breaking study for the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) into how future smart cities could sync with and support the mental health of their residents and visitors.
