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.

Sponsorships/Memberships Committee
CAMI's important efforts on behalf of our state's cybersecurity companies and industry require funding. Though operating as a lean and mean sales and marketing machine, operations are at full capacity with dozens of events and programs and extensive marketing, and more dollars are needed to expand these important efforts. The Sponsorship/Memberships Committee is charged with working closely with CAMI's Director of Operations to pursue sponsorships and increase CAMI's membership.
