Md. to train students in cyber security
Maryland is partnering with higher education, companies and the federal government to train 1,000 students in cyber security.
Gov. Martin O'Malley made the announcement Monday with Maryland Sens. Barbara Mikulski and Benjamin Cardinand Rep. John Sarbanes.
The Pathways to Cyber Security Careers Consortium, which includes academic, industry and government partners, has received almost $5 million for a three-year grant from the U.S. Labor Department.
Sarbanes (D-Md.) says the cyber security business is a large growth area for the region, and the state needs to prepare for job opportunities in the industry.
