GOVERNOR MARTIN O’MALLEY TO HIGHLIGHT CYBER SECURITY AND THE NEW ECONOMY IN MARYLAND



ANNAPOLIS, MD (May 23, 2011) –TODAY, Governor Martin O’Malley will participate in two events to unveil a plan and vision for how Maryland can successfully compete and win in the new economy.

The Governor will join U.S. Senator Barbara A. Mikulski, Congressman C.A. “Dutch” Ruppersberger and University System of Maryland (USM) Chancellor Dr. William E. “Brit” Kirwan to release the USM Cyber Security Task Force report.

In November 2010, USM Chancellor Kirwan convened a task force of representatives from USM institutions, state and federal government agencies, and private-sector businesses to examine the assets of the USM in the area of cyber security and evaluate the workforce needs of government agencies and private industry. The Task Force will present its finished report, highlighting five actionable and achievable recommendations.

In the afternoon, the Governor will join over 500 Maryland space industry leaders as the keynote speaker at the Maryland Space Business Roundtable Luncheon, where he will unveil a plan to advance knowledge and create jobs in the new economy.
