KNOXVILLE, Tenn. Feb. 8, 2018 – EDGE Security Conference organizer and award-winning information security and compliance consulting firm Sword & Shield Enterprise Security announced today its intention to launch a national campaign to take EDGE2018 on the road to gain more exposure for the growing cybersecurity conference.
Sword & Shield has already identified two locations for the summits for the fall, with potentially more to come.
As a nationally-recognized organization, the company will leverage its West Coast presence with a summit in the Greater Portland, Oregon, area and its 20-year presence in the South with a summit in Nashville, Tennessee.
These day-long events will feature expert speakers, interactive panel discussions, and peer networking.
“For 2018, we’ve decided to have multiple events across the country, beginning with Portland and Nashville,” said Sword & Shield President and CEO John McNeely. “We are concentrating on gaining more national awareness for EDGE to empower us to present the level of conference we feel security conscious organizations deserve.”
In only its second year, EDGE2017 was by all accounts a huge success; drawing more than 450 attendees from 21 states and featuring more than 30 speakers from both the private and public sectors.
McNeely said it’s imperative to continue to have a venue for cybersecurity conversations and education in order to fight the growing threat of cybercrime.
“EDGE2017 was extremely positive and a big step toward our goal of presenting a world-class, can’t-miss security conference,” said McNeely. “We have to have that to fight cybercrime.”
