The Cybersecurity Association of Maryland, Inc. (CAMI) board of directors has elected two new members, one member for a second term and an Executive Committee who will help CAMI position Maryland to capitalize on the tremendous growth expected in the cybersecurity sector, mobilize the state’s unmatched cybersecurity talent for exponential growth and stake its claim as the birthplace of the industry.
New Board members are Gregg Smith, CEO of SilentCircle and Darrell Laffoon, VP Technology with EZShield. Elected for a second term was Karen Austin, Publisher of the United States Cybersecurity Magazine and the Armed Forces Directory.
New officers include Gina Abate, CEO of Edwards Performance Solutions as Vice-Chair and Spencer Wilcox, Director of Operational Technology CyberSecurity at Exelon Corporation as Secretary. Evan Dornbush, CEO of Point3 Security and Tim Lorello, CEO of Seculore Solutions, were also elected.
CAMI is a next-generation economic development trade group. It is the nation’s only state cybersecurity trade association and its non-profit mission is to maximize Maryland cybersecurity sales and job creation by exploiting an unprecedented market where financial damages are now measured in the trillions of dollars. “Growing our already robust cybersecurity industry is perhaps the biggest market growth opportunity that Maryland has ever seen,” says Stacey Smith, Executive Director of CAMI.
