How Maryland is leading the way in cyber security for the federal government, military and intelligence agencies – and what this means the region’s economy

The morning conference – organized by Corridor Inc., PressBox and Center Maryland – is set for Thursday, Sept. 22nd, at the Hotel at Arundel Preserve, located at Arundel Mills. Click here to register, which costs $90 ($15 discount before Sept. 1).

As the nation races to stay ahead of the latest online hackers and espionage from sources both foreign and domestic, Maryland has become an epicenter for developing and refining the latest systems. From the establishment of the U.S. Cyber Command at Fort Meade to the proliferation of private contractors requiring top secret clearances for their employees, government-related cyber security remains one of the state’s hottest growth areas.

Speakers will outline the state of cyber security in Maryland, what lies ahead, and – most importantly – what opportunities exist for companies of all sizes.

Congressman Dutch Ruppersberger, Ranking Member of the House Select Committee on Intelligence, is scheduled to be the keynote speaker. The event will include a special introduction from Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler.

Other speakers include Aris Melissaratos, former Secretary of the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development, and Chris Foster, business development executive at Raytheon. More speakers are to be announced in the coming days.
