Maryland Commission on Cybersecurity Innovation and Excellence
In July 2011, the Maryland Commission on Cybersecurity Innovation and Excellence was authorized.
The Commission is charged with conducting an overview of federal and state cyber security laws and policies. It will consider Maryland's role in promoting cyber innovation and recommend a comprehensive framework and strategic plan for cyber security innovation and excellence, including recovery from cyber attack. The Commission will also recommend ways to attract private investment, and promote innovation through public and private partnerships, research and development, workforce training, and education. The Commission must report interim findings and recommendations to the Governor and the General Assembly by January 1, 2012, and final findings and recommendations by September 1, 2014.
