The CyberMaryland Conference is an annual two-day event presented by the Federal Business Council (FBC) in conjunction with academia, government and private industry organizations. This year’s theme, “Cyber Threats, Nevermore: Unifying the Cyber Community in Maryland and Beyond” pays homage to a historic Maryland icon – famous poet and cryptographer Edgar Allan Poe. Additionally, the conference provides an opportunity for Maryland to demonstrate its natural leadership in cybersecurity.
CyberMaryland includes thought leaders from Maryland’s cybersecurity sector and also features nationally recognized speakers and panelists on cyber and technology innovations. Sessions cover the most up-to-date information from thought leaders in all facets of the cyber ecosystem.
In conjunction with the conference, the CyberMaryland Industry Showcase provides a full array of today’s top cybersecurity companies, prime contractors, small businesses, financial organizations and educational institutions showcasing their products, services and/or organizations. The CyberMaryland Challenge seeks teams willing to test a range of skills in a battle of real world cyber challenges. Your team will climb a ladder of challenges demonstrating an ability to work together, understand both simple and complex vulnerabilities, defensive operations and gamified offensive operations. And the CyberMaryland Job Fair is a hiring event the first day of the conference where cleared and non-cleared security professionals can meet with leading employers. It’s a tremendous networking opportunity whether you’re an active job seeker or just considering possibilities.
