Maryland is a cybersecurity hot spot, with the main cybersecurity industry region radiating from government and defense missions surrounding Ft. Meade in Anne Arundel County. Aberdeen Proving Ground and Patuxent River Naval Air Systems Command have also seen rapid growth in government cybersecurity activity in addition to commercial cybersecurity sector growth in Prince George’s, Baltimore, and Howard Counties.
