If you can build a system that you can't beat, you aren't smart enough
to claim to be able to create unbeatable systems.
A truly intelligent and informed designer understands the shortcomings
in their systems, and shortcomings always exist somewhere.
Actually, you ignored the portion of Harlan's message that actually
applied to your point: That Abagnale does, in fact, profit from his past
through work he's done for other companies. It doesn't matter whether
he consulted with them or was hired directly -- trying to bring that up

Perhaps the reason that you don't need it spelled out is because you're
really not interested in putting the words together in the first place?
