In Memoriam: Honoring the Life and Legacy of Murtada Hamzawy

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved colleague and friend, Murtada. His untimely departure is a tremendous loss for our company, our partners, and the community we’ve been a part of for many years now. Murtada was a visionary leader and faithful executive serving in his role as COO at BH. He started his journey at Block Harbor with a big career change, offering to work for free in exchange for mentorship in cybersecurity. Over the years, Murtada’s natural leadership skills, experiences in the trenches, and abilities to get stuff done have left an indelible mark on our team. He was a mentor, a friend, a source of passion, an inspiration, and so much more to all who had the privilege of getting to know him. He was known for his breadth of knowledge and willingness to do whatever it took to make sure his team was successful. We extend our deepest condolences to Murtada’s family, friends, and all who were touched by his remarkable life. In this difficult time, we ask for your thoughts and prayers for Murtada’s loved ones and all of us at Block Harbor as we navigate this profound loss together.
