CyberMontgomery Forum to Promote Local Cybersecurity Sector


Cybersecurity will be a major growth engine in the region for many years to come. Even with solid federal government, industry and academic assets already in place locally, there is still a need to bring them together so that they can coalesce and elevate the cyber ecosystem to a level of national prominence.

That’s the purpose of the second annual CyberMontgomery Forum to be held on July 30, from 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., at the Universities at Shady Grove Conference Center, in Building II, on the campus at 9630 Gudelsky Dr., Rockville.

The program will provide a full day of sessions and networking with attendees identifying opportunities in the rapidly growing cybersecurity sector anchored in Montgomery County and making meaningful connections to accelerate success in the cybersecurity marketplace.

Register online until July 29 at 11 a.m.

The CyberMontgomery Forum was developed jointly by the Department of Economic Development and the Federal Business Council in conjunction with leaders from federal and local government agencies, industry and academia. Montgomery County is home to over 18 federal agencies including NIST, FDA, NOAA, and the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence.
