Recognizing the diverse needs of the many partners in our State, the Maryland Local Cybersecurity Collaborative (MLCC) was created by the Office of Security Management as part of the initiatives to achieve a “whole of state” cyber resiliency posture. The MLCC brings CIOs, CISOs, and other security personnel from the many local jurisdictions across the State, such as counties, municipalities, and public school systems.
The goal of the MLCC is to create a space where the Maryland cybersecurity community can meet, get information, and share information. The MLCC will also provide an avenue to foster the State’s mission to improve “whole of state” cybersecurity by promoting an environment for local jurisdictions to express their challenges and needs, identify gaps, and think of State-level solutions to support the locals. Locals will receive vital intel, kept abreast of new legislation and requirements, and have a place to share resources and training opportunities.
The MLCC had its inaugural meeting in December of 2022 and meets every other month.
