State of Maryland and NSA Announce New Cybersecurity Partnership

October 21st, 2021 by WCBC Radio

Governor Larry Hogan today announced that the State of Maryland and the NSA have formed a new cybersecurity fellowship to share best practices and expertise. Fulfilling a commitment made earlier this year at the Annapolis Cybersecurity Summit, the NSA Department of Information Technology Fellow will advise the state on enterprise data practice, policies, standards, and security.

NSA senior data analyst, Jason S. Jabers, will collaborate with the Governor’s Office, the Chief Information Officer, and other key government, academic, and private sector organizations on a comprehensive data architecture plan for the state.

“We are proud to have cutting edge cybersecurity experts, including those from the NSA, in Maryland to further our mission of keeping residents secure from cyber vulnerabilities,” said Governor Hogan. “These organizations, as well as our many private sector companies, universities and colleges throughout the region, continue to bolster Maryland’s role as the cyber capital of America.”
