CyberPoint Helps Prepare First-of-Its-Kind Cyber Jobs Report for Maryland

BALTIMORE, MD (January 10, 2013) — As part of a collaborative effort between industry, the non-profit sector, and public sector organizations, CyberPoint helped to prepare the first Maryland Cyber Jobs Report. This first-of-its-kind study analyzed some 340,000 cyber security job offerings at more than 18,000 companies across the United States. It found 19,413 job openings in Maryland (and, over 13,000 of them located in Baltimore City, the city placed third among major cyber hot beds, behind only Palo Alto and San Francisco, California, in the number of available cyber security positions.

Maryland's Governor Martin O'Malley said of the report, "This study confirms what we've come to know — from internships and work-study programs for high school and college students, to professional positions for established cyber workers with advanced degrees — Maryland's cyber security industry offers an array of opportunities for enterprising individuals. If you're interested in protecting the nation's digital highway, Maryland is the place to be."

The Cyber Jobs Report was funded by the Abell Foundation and coordinated through Baltimore's CyberPoint Technology & Innovation Center. The study represents a collaborative effort by CyberPoint International, CyberMaryland, Welz & Weisel Communications, and their community partners. The report includes a snapshot of the industry, its job openings and educational opportunities, and a proposed standardized cyber security nomenclature for this emerging industry.
