DCMeetup Sponsorship Packages

Organized by Tyrone E. Wilson, CEO of Cover6 Solutions, The D.C. Cyber Security Professionals Meetup group comprises over 4,000 professionals from all aspects of Cyber Security. Through our Meetup network as well as additional Social Media outlets, sponsors have the ability to reach thousands of individuals and companies.

Benefits of Being a Sponsor

As a sponsor, you will gain name recognition, build a network of contacts, and identify potential business leads from the area’s leading cyber security professionals.  The meetup group also allows sponsors and keynote speakers a chance to promote their products and themselves while giving our members a chance to receive free training as well as potential member discounts to conferences and various gatherings.

The proliferation of web-ready devices has made the Internet maximally accessible while leaving Internet users more vulnerable than ever.

Cybercrime is a multi-trillion-dollar global industry, disproportionately fueled by the losses of American businesses which are disproportionately affected by cybercrime.

In 2015, Cybercrime cost American businesses of $500 million dollars, with damages averaging $15.42 million per affected institution — more than six times the $2.37 million and $3.47 million dollar losses incurred by their Russian and Australian counterparts, respectively.

As American institutions continue to weather crippling cyber attacks, cybersecurity specialists face an uphill battle to develop and maintain the specialized skills required to navigate cybersecurity’s rapidly evolving landscape.


With the goal of providing accessible, ongoing training to build and strengthen a community of dedicated cybersecurity specialists — and a passion for cybersecurity — the first Cover6 Solutions Meetup Group launched in January 2012.

Since 2012, we’ve grown from a modest attendance of 50 to a community of more than 4,000 cybersecurity professionals in the DC area alone, as well as sister Meetup groups in Boston and Miami.

Our members include tenured and up-and-coming cybersecurity talent, committed to building their knowledge and skills through technical presentations, training workshops, networking functions and sponsored events. To keep pace with our rapidly evolving industry, the Cover6 Solutions’ Meetups are held twice a month at no cost to our members.

Our sponsors generously provide free training, product demonstrations, and discounts on products and services for Meetup members.

By helping us secure larger venues, expert speakers and training workshops, our sponsors foster invaluable education, solidarity, and collaboration that encourage important breakthroughs. For this we proudly introduce your brand to our members, and strive to meet your cybersecurity and business needs with customizable advertising, product placements, online logo placements, and speaking opportunities.

Your support is vital to our ability to provide frequent, high-value learning opportunities that benefit the cybersecurity community, business, and sponsors alike.

Increased name recognition among an invested community of cybersecurity professionals hailing from local and international organizations
Networking among a close-knit, group of leading cybersecurity professionals and industry representatives
Direct access to a community of tenured and up-and-coming in-demand talent and industry players
Establishing their organization as thought leaders by engaging the Cover6 community with ongoing talks and product demonstrations

I think that cyber security professionals need more opportunities like these to get together and learn and share best practices and new areas of knowledge.

Great people who are authentically passionate about cybersecurity and helping inspire and educate the technical community.

Tyrone is an incredible instructor. Not only did he take time to make us feel welcome, he is well-paced, hard working, and teaches an aspect of Offensive Cyber Security that not many of us have before encountered. I enjoyed the courses I attended, and felt that I would like to learn more from this instructor in the coming years.
