Sponsorship

The (ISC)2 Baltimore Chapter is dedicated to the advancement of the information system security profession by offering educational sessions and acting as a conduit for connecting information system security professionals with each other for collaboration and research and with the local community through charity and awareness initiatives.

Becoming a sponsor of the (ISC)2 Baltimore Chapter shows that your organization supports the advancement of the information system security profession.  Becoming a sponsor will also create brand recognition with our professional members and provide another avenue for recruitment of skilled candidates. 

Sponsorship of (ISC)2 Baltimore Chapter entitles your organization to the benefits outlined in this document unless other agreements have been made.  The sponsorship period runs for one year from the time of sign-up.

(ISC)2 Baltimore Chapter Sponsorship Policy

If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, please contact the VP of Sponsorship (sponsorship@isc2baltimorechapter.org).

Requirements

Sponsors of (ISC)2 Baltimore Chapter must agree to and comply with the following conditions. All sponsorships are subject to the (ISC)2 Baltimore Chapter Board of Directors (BOD) approval. This program only applies to the (ISC)2 Baltimore Chapter, and provides no benefits at (ISC)2 or to direct benefits at other (ISC)2 regional chapters.

    • All sponsorships must comply with the (ISC)2 Baltimore Chapter mission.

    • (ISC)2 Baltimore Chapter also has a “non-aggressive” marketing policy.  Our membership is unique and attends (ISC)2 Baltimore Chapter events regularly primarily because we have established this type of environment for education, information, and professional networking.  Our membership strongly resists aggressive marketing tactics and obvious “sales-pitches.” We have found that the non-aggressive approach provides much better results and ultimately benefit the sponsor and the membership at large.  (ISC)2 Baltimore Chapter actively enforces this policy. 

    • “Negative campaigning” against competitors is neither welcome nor permitted. The aim of the sponsor (ISC)2 Baltimore Chapter affiliation is to foster a professional atmosphere among (ISC)2 Baltimore Chapter members and interested parties with the intention of enhancing member recruitment and retention.

    • The affiliation should focus on improving the professional knowledge of information security practitioners
