Howard County Executive Kenneth Ulman last week announced the creation of a cyber commission to advise him on how to maximize opportunities presented by the expanding cybersecurity business in the Baltimore-Washington area.

The commission will look into things companies considering moving to the area will want, including business-related needs, such as having hotel conference centers close by, or living needs, such as having good schools in the area, explorehoward.com reports.

Larry Cox, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager, will co-chair the 13-member commission with Richard Roca, former director of the Applied Physics Laboratory at Johns Hopkins University..

“What we're seeing now is building whole new industries around this whole new thing called cyber,“ Cox was quoted as saying by explorehoward.com. “It requires a considerable stepping up to the plate, though, to make it happen.“

Local government, he added, is important in helping bring cyber jobs to the area by attracting individuals with the skills needed to work in the cybersecurity market.

“Our local officials are working hard to make sure this is a lovely and compelling place to live,“ Cox said.
