“Focus 08” launches major initiative to battle cybercrime.
The Global fight against Cybercrime... So much informa- tion, very little insight. Non-stop changes in threats, regula- tions, and technologies have made it hard for companies to maintain a coherent cyber security and compliance strategy. That’s why McAfee, the world’s leading security risk man- agement company created the FOCUS 08 Security Confer- ence... to clear away the industry clutter, allow fellow users to exchange ideas, and concentrate on the chal- lenges that matter the most.
The site for the event was the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. With 1,500 top cyber-security experts in attendance and the entire industry looking on, McAfee could settle for no less than perfection. The pressure was on, and the selection of EVI as event producer proved to be a great choice. With its 25-year track record of excellence, the EVI team met
the challenge head-on with renowned project management skills, technical capabilities and creativity artistry.
One-year in the making, the event presented a complex mixture of event management and producing demands.
The ability to collaborate with and complement the talented McAfee internal team was crucial. EVI and McAfee worked tirelessly together every step of the way on all aspects
of the project, including:
• Overall Event Project Management
