Erick SimpsonSenior Vice President & CIO, SPC International Online

Evan is an engaging speaker and an authority on information security. At our recent security-focused event, attendees were actively taking pictures of his slides and writing down notes while he spoke. He presented quality content useful both for people who may invest in FISASCORE, and also the general public looking to learn more about information security.

Joe DashowDirector of Sales, IT Solutions Group, Loffler

Evan did a great job on our webinar. He was very easy to listen to and made the topic understandable, especially for someone who knows nothing about the subject. He did a great job at communicating/signaling me to go onto the next slide of the presentation as well – made my job much easier!

Lia CapaldiniMN Chamber of Commerce

The topic of cybersecurity is a crucial one for our business community. John’s presentation was exactly what our Chamber was looking for in a presenter. His humor combined with his expertise made for an engaging and enlightening – and a little bit frightening – luncheon presentation. I would strongly recommend John Harmon to present at your next business education meeting on the topic of cybersecurity.

Kellie SitesWaconia Chamber of Commerce

Brad was our instructor for a CISSP boot camp. He did an excellent job of balancing staying on task going over hundreds of slides and engaging the class. The definition of boot camp is: “a short, intensive, and rigorous course of training”. Brad did his part in getting the class through it by being prepared, engaged, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic. I highly recommend Brad as an instructor for cybersecurity topics.
