Evan Bloom

Company: Fortress Strategic Communications
Title: CEO
Class: Cyber Security: Sometimes, Your Gut Isn't The Only Thing Telling You

Evan Bloom is the CEO of Fortress Strategic Communications. For over 20 years he has provided top-level customized public relations for enterprise risk management industries, garnering extensive experience in areas as diverse as IT security, document imaging and management, business continuity and disaster recovery, safety and security, and others.

Most of these industries maintain strict confidentiality and cannot identify their clients in promotional materials. Evan specializes in counseling companies that face these types of public relations challenges unique to the enterprise risk management arena. His focused techniques and issues-based strategies and campaigns deliver measurable, profitable results:  many of his clients have maintained strong media prominence over the long term despite constraints regarding disclosure of specific details.

Evan’s experience stretches across small, medium and enterprise-size companies. He is adept at helping businesses build an engaging and newsworthy company narrative, create dynamic profiles of senior executives and spokespeople, identify and own market issues, cultivate positive long-term relationships with media, and expand their business and vertical trade publication footprint. Evan’s team develops media-ready news content that also serves as effective customer communications.

Evan Bloom graduated cum laude with an M. S. in Business Continuity from Norwich University in Vermont. He works closely with clients in the United States and in the developing markets of South Africa and Kenya.

We have come to NY Tech Summit for four years now and my team and I get a good variety of technical, business, and strategic sessions to complement our work objectives. I like that there is a balance of end users, consultants, and vendors to present and facilitate the sessions. The interaction is candid and engaging, but not a sales pitch. Being a regional conference helps, it is the right amount of time and location for a couple days to reenergize my team and refocus on our objectives. There seems to be quite a bit of peer discussion with a smaller conference, which I like.
