A new law (formerly H.B. 665) establishes a cybersecurity task force within the Maryland state government. The task force is designed to evaluate mitigation and prevention strategies to prepare for a cyberattack. The task force will also conduct a review of existing policies, standards, and best practices within state agencies to identify inconsistences and devise new programs.
