The Greater Baltimore region plays a lead role in the global fight to stop cybercrime, which is estimated to cost the world as much as $6 trillion annually by 2021 (Cisco, 2019). Cybersecurity firms are playing a large and ever-growing role in the Region’s business landscape. The industry is thriving due to Greater Baltimore’s unique proximity to federal cyber assets – the Region is bookended by Fort George G. Meade and Aberdeen Proving Ground – and its high density of talented researchers and cyber workers. Coordinated investments in cyber clusters throughout the region, along with a robust ecosystem that supports the continued growth of the industry and the jobs it creates, are catalysts for establishing the Greater Baltimore region as the Silicon Valley of cybersecurity for the 21st century.
