Cybersecurity Corridor


Over at Homeland Security Newswire (HSNW), they have a piece on I-95 becoming the new Cybersecurity Silicon Valley.  I think it’d be more like an alley, but I do like the idea of more cyber industries coming to the east coast instead of heading out west like all the other tech companies have.

Head on over to HSNW and check out the article.

Two areas around Washington, D.C. are already centers of high-tech industry: Telecommunications companies and government contractors dominate the Dulles Toll Road corridor in Virginia, and biotechnology firms line the corridor along Interstate 270 in Maryland; experts say the corridor along the Interstate 95 corridor between Washington and Baltimore is becoming a cybersecurity center

Two areas immediately outside Washington, D.C. are already important centers for high-tech industry. Telecommunications companies and government contractors dominate the Dulles Toll Road corridor in Virginia, and biotechnology firms line the corridor along Interstate 270 in Maryland.

Is there a third such concentration in the offing? Walter P. Havenstein, chief executive of SAIC, predicts it could be a cybersecurity corridor along the Interstate 95 corridor between Washington and Baltimore (see “Maryland wants to become cybersecurity’s Silicon Valley,” 13 January 2010 HSNW).
