Cybersecurity ’roundtable’ formed to boost MD’s cyber industry

The first meeting of the new cybersecurity roundtable takes place later this month.

The National Security Agency headquarters is located at Fort Meade, Maryland's largest employer with close to 60,000 employees.

A cybersecurity “roundtable” is being formed by Maryland state government to “bolster the state’s efforts to become a center for the rapidly growing field,” according to the Washington Post.

State officials have been beating this drum for some time.

But it remains a question as to how much or what part of this growing industry benefits Baltimore city. In July, Technical.ly Baltimore tried to piece together the economic benefit to the city of the state’s cybersecurity industry, only to find that summarizing the benefit in any meaningful way is almost impossible. As we wrote at the time, digging into the data of workers in the cybersecurity reveals that “cybersecurity activity is mostly concentrated in the counties south of Baltimore.”

Oh, and let’s not forget about the revelations of domestic surveillance at the Maryland-based National Security Agency brought on by the Edward Snowden leaks.

The first meeting of the new cybersecurity roundtable takes place later this month.
