Branding of ‘CyberMaryland’

1 min read


o'malleyMaryland wants to be the “silicon valley of cyber security.” Just yesterday, state officials, including Gov. Martin O’Malley, launched a movement to bring more cybersecurity to the state through jobs and research.

And it makes perfect sense. Maryland is home to top universities like Johns Hopkins, several major military installations, the U.S. National Security Agency, the Chesapeake Innovation Center, as well as numerous cybersecurity vendors.

O’Malley’s administration released a report yesterday that describes the way the state will aim to improve cybersecurity. This report is 32 pages in length and calls for the state to work with the national government.

According to an InformationWeek report, O’Malley said, “Maryland is poised to lead the nation’s war on cyber crime.” His administration is committed to developing the brand of “CyberMaryland” and creating the first ever cybersecurity epicenter.
