In July 2011, the Maryland Commission on Cybersecurity Innovation and Excellence was authorized. The commission was charged with conducting an overview of federal and state cybersecurity laws and policies. It considered Maryland's role in promoting cyber innovation and recommended strategies for cybersecurity innovation and excellence, including recovery from cyber attack.

The commission also recommended ways to attract private investment, and promote innovation through public and private partnerships, research and development, workforce training, and education. The commission submitted reports of interim findings and recommendations to the Governor and the General Assembly by January 1, 2012, and final findings and recommendations by September 1, 2014.
