The CyberMaryland Conference is an annual two-day event presented jointly by The National Cyber Security Hall of Fame and Federal Business Council (FBC) in conjunction with academia, government and private industry organizations. The theme, “Leading the Cyber Generation,” captures the event’s intent to provide unparalleled information sharing and networking opportunities for development of cyber assets on both the human and technological side. Additionally, the conference provides an opportunity for Maryland to demonstrate its natural leadership in Cyber Security.
Attendees will hear from top cyber professionals in areas including Cyber education and workforce development, innovation, policy and threat intelligence. Each track will consist of 10 or more sessions led by keynote speakers, panelists and abstract presenters. Between sessions attendees are encouraged to watch the live CyberChallenge competition or to visit the CyberMaryland Industry Showcase. The Cyber Security Hall of Fame Dinner, which is the culmination of the event, is held at the Four Seasons Hotel in Baltimore.
