Cirrus Insight co-founder to emcee upcoming national cybersecurity conference
KNOXVILLE, TN July 20, 2017 The EDGE2017 Security Conference, a world-class cybersecurity conference, announced today that Brandon Bruce, COO and co-founder of Cirrus Insight, will be the emcee at this year’s conference. Cirrus Insight is a sales software company that ranked 41st on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing U.S. companies in 2016.
EDGE2017 will be held on October 17-18 at the Knoxville Convention Center in Knoxville, Tennessee, and aims to tackle the most vexing security challenges of today and tomorrow by bringing together security visionaries, industry leaders, and technology researchers.
“The EDGE Security Conference is fast emerging as a must-attend information security event, and I’m thrilled to be involved,” Bruce said. “I’ll be welcoming to Knoxville a speaker lineup that is a who’s who of cybersecurity experts and attendees from all over the country.”
Keynote speakers at the conference include 33-year Air Force veteran and former director of operations for U.S. Cyber Command, Maj. Gen. Brett T. Williams, and renowned “white hat” hackers Charlie Miller and Chris Valasek. Miller and Valasek are best known for their remote compromise of a 2014 Jeep Cherokee, whereby they obtained physical control of the vehicle, exposing serious security flaws. The results of this breach led Fiat Chrysler to recall 1.4 million vehicles.
“Brandon has an engaging personality and is a creative tech entrepreneur,” said John McNeely, president of Sword & Shield Enterprise Security, the cybersecurity firm hosting EDGE2017. “He has already contributed some great ideas for making EDGE2017 a more fun and interactive conference, and I look forward seeing him guide attendees through everything we have to offer this year.”
