Matthew J. Harmon is a Principal Consultant for consulting firm IT Risk Limited, a security researcher, an entrepreneur, and an instructor for the SANS Institute and St. Paul College teaching offensive and defensive computer security to a new generation. Forever fascinated by taking things apart to understand how they work and how to rebuild them, Mr. Harmon has spent the last two decades building new technology, performing forensic investigations when things go horribly wrong and helping build better methods to manage IT risk. Mr. Harmon enjoys using relatable analogies and real world examples to translate the importance of complex and highly technical concepts so that they can be understood by everyone. He believes that familiarity with these concepts is increasingly crucial as our daily lives intertwine even more firmly with the Internet of Things.
