“Shon Harris was my friend, colleague, mentor, and coauthor for almost 2 decades. She contributed a huge amount to the Information Security community and her continued work will be sorely missed. I will miss her sense of humor”
Michael Lester, Information Security Consultant
“Words seem inadequate to express the sadness we feel about Shon's passing. She was a brilliant and dedicated professional, and a warm, wonderful, and kind person. I will miss her forever. With sincere sympathy, David R. Miller and the Miller family.”
David Miller, Information Security Consultant
"Shon was a one of kind and a good friend. When I say one of a kind, I mean that she was the type of person that would do anything for me and my family. And she did many times over. Since first meeting with her in 1998, rarely did a day pass where she wasn’t in mine and my wife’s thoughts and do not anticipate that to change anytime soon. Her sudden passing has made me realize how unfair it is that you do not realize how much of an impact someone has made on your life until they are gone. Shon’s influence on not only my life but that of my family is positively immeasurable. I only wish that I would have had the chance to properly thank her."
Bill Griffin, Senior Account Manager, Secure Ninja
“Many in the security industry have been touched by Shon’s work in one way or another, whether it be through their studies for certifications or who knew her directly. Her influence is not only in security as trainer and thought leader, but also as an entrepreneur, as someone who had the skills and ingenuity to roll up her sleeves and build a business that served a real need.”
