ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Cybersecurity executives and government officials are forming a roundtable group aimed at boosting the state’s efforts to become a center for the growing field.

The Washington Post reports (http://wapo.st/1fB5QQv ) that the group is set to meet for the first time later this month.

Secretary of Business and Economic Development Dominick Murray says the state’s Federal Facilities Advisory Board recommended the group and he welcomes the idea. He sees it as a way to bring together private companies, academic institutions and government groups.

Maryland is home to both the National Security Agency and the military’s U.S. Cyber Command and state officials have tried to take advantage of the opportunity. In 2010, Gov. Martin O’Malley a CyberMaryland initiative to coordinate state marketing to raise its cybersecurity profile.
