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. This road show capability will, in time, connect thousands of organizations to local cybersecurity companies and will help ensure Maryland's overall cybersecurity.
