At the CyberMaryland conference in Baltimore on Thursday, state officials signed an international memorandum of understanding with The Hague Security Delta.

The MOU with the Dutch cluster of more than 400 companies will last three years and, Department of Business and Economic Development officials hope, will lead to economic growth opportunities in both regions.

Cooperation between two major security hubs: Maryland and the Netherlands.

“As a state, as a nation and as a global community, we face unparalleled security challenges,” DBED Secretary Dominick Murray said in a release. “Partnerships like this are critical to sharing information, developing new technologies to address security challenges, and most importantly, to maintaining the safety of our world. We are very pleased to be working so closely with the Hague Security Delta.”

The Hague Security Delta was officially established last year. It was first launched as a two-year project in March 2012, with the support of The Hague’s municipal government and the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs.

“This cooperation between two major security hubs across the Atlantic, will allow enterprises and research institutions to benefit from each other’s networks and provide access to markets and resources,” Ida Haisma, the partnership’s executive director, said in a release. “For the Netherlands’ security sector, the cooperation presents the opportunity to create a knowledge platform with the United States, to learn from the Maryland experience in security ecosystem development, and to increase its foothold in the United States.”
