Maryland already hosts major elements of the nation’s intelligence infrastructure, and our well-educated workforce and geographic location make it a launching pad for America’s redoubled investment in technological defense work. “Cybersecurity” is a major focus of our national homeland security objectives, and Maryland will play host to much of that effort. The session will include Congressional, local government, and academic perspectives on the importance of this mission to the country’s defense, as well as the practical effects of the physical facilities, high-level jobs, and economic growth that will accompany it.
Join The Honorable C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger, US House of Representatives; Donald F. Kettl, PhD, Dean, School of Public Policy, University of Maryland; and Ken Ulman, Howard County Executive for a lively presentation on Cybersecurity on Wednesday, August 17 from 3:30 – 4:30 p.m.
