Cybersecurity Education-EARN Maryland

Cybersecurity ​Training and Certification Opportunity

The Maryland Department of Labor, in partnership with the Maryland Department of Information Technology (DoIT) and the Employment Advancement Right Now (EARN) Maryland program grantee BCR Cyber will provide cutting edge cybersecurity training to Maryland state government employees. This Statewide training will include BCR Cyber​’s Cybersecurity Operational Methods Education Training (“COMET”) which consists of both Incumbent and Advanced Incumbent Training.

The Advanced Incumbent Training will train, test, and certify state employees who have more than five (5) years of IT experience for the Certified Information Security Systems Professional Certification (“CISSP”), an advanced International Information System Security Certification Consortium (“(ISC)²”) certificate which is required for efforts involving the design and implementation of most government IT systems architectures.
