Partner organizations include industry trade groups, chambers of commerce, economic development authorities, military and government installations in Maryland as well as higher education institutions. A key priority for this committee is activating partner organization support in educating their members of the urgency for cybersecurity protection and the availability and capabilities of our local industry to meet their needs.

Speakers Bureau
Most businesses are generally aware of cybersecurity challenges but are not well-informed on the severity of risk to their own business or where to go to find the solutions they need. And with busy schedules, it's difficult to get most of them to attend cybersecurity events. The Speakers Bureau addresses all of these challenges by sending appropriate specialists and professionals to provide educational talks at large and small business gatherings. The speakers use CAMI's entertaining new multi-media presentation to inform and persuade business executives to take action by turning to CAMI and its hundreds of cybersecurity providers as a resource. This road show capability will, in time, connect thousands of Maryland businesses and government entities to local cybersecurity companies and will help ensure Maryland's overall cybersecurity.
