1 Cyber Security in Greater Baltimore a State of the Market Report prepared by: Patrick Dougherty Market & Research Analyst Nadir Mechairia Market & Research Intern

2 Introduction Greater Baltimore is a hub for Cyber Security, one of the fastest growing and increasingly important industries in the world. The Baltimore-Washington corridor is one of the most concentrated in the US in terms of Cyber Security talent and is in company with regions such as San Francisco, Seattle, and Boston. The region is home to notable information assurance research and education universities alongside nearly all of the nation s most important federal agencies and institutions. How does Cyber Security affect the Public Sector? Globally, the Cyber Security industry is worth an estimated $68.35 billion, 1 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 11.3% through The industry will be worth an estimated $120.1 billion before the end of the decade. 3 The United States is unique in that government expenditure on Cyber Security is almost equal to private sector expenditure. 4 As warfare has become increasingly cyber-based and reliant on advanced technology,protecting information has grown to be a matter of national security. James Clapper, the director of national intelligence, calls Cyber the top transnational threat. 5 The US government continues to recognize the industry s importance and has increased its level of spending on Cyber Security: $406 million is allocated in 2013 for the Network Security Department, which operates the EINSTEIN federal intrustion detection and prevention program. 6 Cyber Security contracts totaled $10 billion in and are expected to grow at 7.6% annually to over $14 billion by How does Cyber Security affect the Private Sector? Financial institutions are the most popular targets for cyberattacks and cyberespionage due to the nature of their business. The ubiquity of online wealth management has created a need for the banking industry to become leaders in the use of Cyber Security and proactive in its continued expansion. Often, breaches of security go undetected. Financial institutions will need to not only protect themselves from cyber threats, but detect and remediate breaches before their clients funds are further compromised. In 2012, Global Payments, credit card processor for Visa and MasterCard, was hacked. The breach compromised 1.5 million US accounts. 9 The Healthcare industry holds some of the world s most sensistive information and is becoming the target of cyber attacks. Health care providers can deliver more efficient and more affordable patient care through the use of electronic health information, but few in the Healthcare industry are able to appropriately secure their information. As Electronic Medical Records (EMR) become more widely used in order to cut costs and improve efficiencies, there will be an increasing need to protect healthcare networks and the information contained within. Even technology industry giants such as Google, 10 Yahoo!, 11 and PlayStation 12 have been the victims of cyberattacks, leaving personal identification and financial information available. As innovation grows increasingly valuable, cyberespionage that targets intellectual property will become more rewarding and therefore more common. Protecting personal ideas, idenfitication, and financial information is required in a networked world. 2

3 Introduction Key Facts and Findings Commuting patterns indicate a fluid movement of labor between the Baltimore and Washington, DC metropolitan areas, creating a larger ecosystem of talent and industry. There are over 75,000 employed in Cyber Security-related jobs in the Greater Baltimore/Central Maryland region. There are nearly 20,000 open Cyber Security job positions in Maryland, and over 13,000 of available jobs are located in Greater Baltimore. Greater Baltimore/Central Maryland is home to one of the largest and most concentrated Cyber Security workforces in the country. The Baltimore-Washington corridor s Cyber Security workforce is evenly distributed throughout Maryland, DC, and Virginia. Universities in Greater Baltimore are nationally recognized for their record in producing high-quality graduates with in-demand information assurance skills. Maryland colleges and universities are among the leaders in capturing federal Computer Science research and development funds. The Baltimore-Washington region captures enough Cyber Security-related venture funds to maintain a respectable ranking, but falls short of competing regions in terms of total dollars acquired and number of deals reached. Nearby federal agencies and institutions offer a significant strategic advantage to Cyber Security firms located in the Greater Baltimore region. Many of the largest Information Technology and Defense contractors have locations in Greater Baltimore/Central Maryland. Greater Baltimore is home to both industry leaders and an active and engaged Cyber Security startup community. The region offers a number of support organizations and facilities to strengthen the burgeoning Cyber Security industry. Commercialization and private sector applications are necessary for continued growth of the regional Cyber Security industry. Increased use of Education Technology can help fill the numerous open Cyber Security positions and reduce the rate of unemployment in the region. With the U.S. Cyber Command and other federal agencies engaged in cyber-related activities, world-class universities and research institutions, and some of the most innovative cyber companies in the nation, Maryland is already the epicenter of cybersecurity. The Greater Baltimore region is an integral part of our burgeoning cybersecurity sector and a prime location for companies seeking to protect the nation and create jobs in Maryland. Governor Martin O Malley 3

4 Defining the Market Geographic Definitions While Greater Baltimore is a clearly defined geographical area, the region is part of a larger economic area that extends across traditionally defined statistical areas. Firms in Greater Baltimore employ talent from all around the Washington-Baltimore region, and the transportation network allows a fluid relationship with the two intertwined markets. Baltimore MSA 13 With a 2012 population of 2,753,149, the Baltimore MSA ranks 20th in size among all US MSAs. It is comprised of Baltimore City and the surrounding counties of Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Carroll, Harford, Howard and Queen Anne. Cecil County is a partner of the Economic Alliance, but is not included in the official metro data for Greater Baltimore. For this report, data on Cecil County employment is included in Baltimore MSA, Central Maryland, and Washington-Baltimore CSA employment figures where noted. MSAs that are comparable in size include San Diego, St. Louis, Tampa, Pittsburgh, and Denver. Baltimore MSA Washington DC Maryland DC Suburbs Northern Virginia Washington-Baltimore CSA 14 With a 2012 population of 9,331,587, the Washington-Baltimore-Northern Virginia CSA ranks 4th in size among all US CSAs. The CSA region is comprised of the Baltimore MSA, the Washington, DC MSA, the Winchester, VA-WV MSA, the California-Lexington Park, MD MSA, the Chambersburg-Waynesboro, PA MSA, the Hagerstown-Martinsburg, MD-WV MSA and the Culpepper, VA, Lexington, MD, Cambridge, MD, and Easton, MD Micropolitan Statistical Areas. Central Maryland When discussing talent and labor, this report will use Central Maryland as the statistical region when possible. Commuting patterns (on the next page) reveal a strong network of commuters to and from the Maryland DC Suburbs. This region is comprised of the Baltimore MSA and the counties of Frederick, Montgomery, and Prince George s. 4

5 Defining the Market Commuting Patterns More than 137,000 DC metro area residents commute to Greater Baltimore for work daily. Additionally, more than 200,000 Greater Baltimore residents commute to the DC metro area for work daily. Commuters from the Maryland suburbs that are traditionally defined as the DC Metro constitute more than one-tenth of the Greater Baltimore labor pool. Combined, these two regions create Central Maryland, which is used as the statistical base for the Greater Baltimore region when appropriate. The Baltimore-Washington region is well connected internally and to the East Coast through comprehensive interstate, rail, and air networks and hubs. Amtrak trains go from New York to three stations in Baltimore and Central Maryland in less than 2.5 hours. The MARC Train offers low cost travel between Greater Baltimore and the DC Metro. BWI is one of the fastest growing airports in the US and offers frequent flights to cities nationally and internationally. These regional connections allow for the fluid movement of residents from one market to the next, which expands the talent pool and market of Greater Baltimore far into the DC Metro area.

8 Cyber Security Workforce Employment Given the limitations of data, it is difficult to precisely quantify the Cyber Security workforce across markets and industries. This report uses several data categories and techniques to best capture the Cyber Security workforce in Baltimore and other major US markets. The numbers presented give a picture of the capacity of the region and Cyber Security-related industries, but do not necessarily reflect the number of employees working for Cyber Security-focused companies. To quantify Cyber Security, EAGB combined a number of relevant occupational designations (see Appendix). The data includes all employees working in Information Technology fields that focus on information security, cyber breach prevention, and data loss remediation. EAGB has isolated occupations that would most relate to the Cyber Security industry specifically. The most complete data comes from the Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Employment Statistics (OES), and data from this source lags from May OES data indicates that Greater Baltimore is one of the most concentrated markets in the US, with 42% more of its employment concentrated in Cyber Security occupations than the US average. In absolute terms, the Baltimore region ranks lower on the list (17th, not shown) with 39,325 employees working in Cyber Security occupations. However, when including the rest of the Central Maryland region, the area would rank 9th in terms of total employment with 75,925 employees in Cyber Security occupations.

15 Key Assets Firms Greater Baltimore is home to some of the world s leading Cyber Security companies and a number of vibrant startups, as shown below: I can think of no better place for cyber security startups than Baltimore. We not only sit right in the backyard of the Federal Government s major centers of cyber excellence, but our ecosystem contains all the essential elements that fuel innovation and drive growth. We re surrounded by the nation s top universities, colleges, and training programs focused on cyber security; we ve got an exceptionally skilled and large technical talent pool; there s plenty of financial capital and organizations ready to invest in good ideas; and there are strong business and entrepreneurial organizations to support startups, open doors and sustain growth. Karl Gumtow Co-Founder and CEO, CyberPoint International 15

16 Key Assets Facilities and Support The Greater Baltimore region recognizes the importance of providing financial support and business assistance to Cyber Security entrepreneurs and innovators. The Maryland state legislature voted to approve the Cybersecurity Investment Incentive Tax Credit that provides a refundable tax credit for Maryland Cyber Security companies that secure funding from within and outside the region. 37 In 2013, the Maryland Technology Development Corporation (TEDCO) announced the Orange Knocks Cyber Fund, which invests in Cyber Security companies. 38 Some of Greater Baltimore s additional Cyber Security support organizations are shown below with a short description of each. Cyber Incubator 42 Offers business and technical support to early stage Cyber Security companies 17 Cyber Security companies currently reside in the incubator on UMBC s campus Home to the CyberMap, a directory of Cyber companies in Maryland, and the CyberHive, a coworking space dedicated to Cyber Security companies Chesapeake Innovation Center 47 Incubator that partners with corporate and government partners to identify technology solutions to mission critial problems Recently added a Health IT support to traditional security and defense focus CyberMaryland 40 Public/private partnership organized by the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development (DBED) that offers resources and services to Cyber companies Curator of the CyberMaryland Map and publisher of the CyberMaryland Report CyberMaryland Conference facilitates interaction with industry leaders and emerging technologies 41 The CYNC Program at 39 Partnership with Northrop Grumman to commercialize Cyber Security technology Provides access to Northrop Grumman representatives and incubator resources The GroundFloor Co-working space opened in 2013 to facilitate commercialization with nearby Aberdeen Proving Ground 48 Collaboration with other regional incubators encourages partnerships across the corridor 49 InvestMaryland 46 State-rasied $84 million for investment in early-stage companies DBED awards funds to emerging companies, disadvantaged entrepreneurs, and as recommended by venture capital firms Invests in Cyber Security, IT, and software companies, among other industries Maryland Cyber Challenge & Competition (MDC3) 50 High school, college, and professionals demonstrate practical skills in Cyber Security All members of winning teams are awarded a scholarship from the NSA and an internship with SAIC MDC3 is held in conjunction with the CyberMaryland Conference to introduce students to the Cyber industry and showcase the skills of regional students 51 National Cyber Security Center of Excellence 45 Strives to increase the rate of adoption of secure technology Advances the Cyber Security industry and accelerates effective innovation Develops practical Cyber solutions based on commercially available technology National Cyber Security Hall of Fame Honors innovation and leadership in the Cyber Security Industry 43 Recognizes achievement in technology, policy, awareness, education, and business 44 16

17 Looking Ahead The Greater Baltimore region is clearly established as a national leader in the Cyber Security industry. As the Cyber Security industry continues to grow, the Baltimore-Washington corridor must remain at the forefront of commercialization, education, and policy. Private Sector Opportunities Cyber Security is widely recognized as a government need to maintain a level of national security in an increasingly networked and digital environment. Greater Baltimore offers an ideal location for serving federal Cyber Security contracts. At the same time, Cyber Security is becoming a concern and a priority for many private institutions. Firms engaging in e-commerce, financial activities, and professional services are entrusted with personal data including credit card information and Social Security numbers that they are expected to protect. Massive leaks of sensitive private data have been reported by some of the world s most advanced technology companies, including Google, Sony, and Global Payments. Greater Baltimore must encourage and facilitate the commercialization of local technological innovations to take advantage of the breadth of Cyber Security applications. Education There are thousands of Cyber Security jobs across the country and in the Greater Baltimore region alone that are difficult to fill due to education requirements. A small pipeline of educated and experienced professionals has developed, and regional colleges and universities have become national leaders in training future Cyber Security leaders. Many local institutions have partnered with Cyber Security leaders to introduce students to opportunities and training to fill specific needs within the industry. The continued and expanded use of Education Technology (EdTech) in classrooms and workforce development programs is of great importance to an industry that values practical ability and proven results as much as certification and degree attainment. 52 Area innovators must continue to push EdTech for technology education to fill regional employment needs with local students and young professionals. Business Support and Financing Maryland s cyber security cluster is incredibly important to our country s well-being, and has an enormous economic impact on the region. Fostering stronger collaboration among government, industry, and academia is how we will develop stronger cyber security nationally, while achieving greater economic impact locally. Brian Darmody Associate VP for Research and Economic Development University of Maryland Attracting innovation capital has proven challenging for the Baltimore-Washington region across a number of industries. While the public sector is maintaining or slowly increasing its expenditure on information security, the breadth and depth of Cyber Security needs in the private sector figure to create a large, fast-growing market.
