There is a war over skilled talent in cybersecurity in Maryland, with more than 50,000 open jobs in Maryland alone. To fill that void, 14 community colleges in Maryland formed a consortium, funded by a U.S. DOL TAACCCT grant, creating partnerships with industry and government, and building unprecedented statewide infrastructure and pathways, state-of-the-art cybersecurity labs, industry-aligned training programs, and more. In four short years, the Cyber Pathways Across Maryland (CPAM) consortium served approximately 4,000 participants, and awarded approximately 1,200 credentials, while engaging more than 300 cyber industry employers statewide.
