Maryland Lawmakers Eye Funds For National Cybersecurity Center

"The federal government plans to pump about $15 million more into cybersecurity initiatives in Maryland, said federal and state lawmakers Monday at an Annapolis cybersecurity company."

The majority of the funding -- $10 million – "would go toward launching a National Cybersecurity Center for Excellence at the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Gaithersburg, as part of an upcoming federal appropriations bill. The center will support the cybersecurity requirements of federal agencies, state and local governments, academia and private businesses, officials said." The article notes, "Separately, the appropriations bill also includes $15 million for NIST to conduct research on emerging cybersecurity technologies and threats."
