Maryland, Israel collaborate on cybersecurity business

A partnership established between Maryland and Israel will play off of each others' business strengths in the cybersecurity and life sciences sectors.

The state of Maryland is trying to rebuild its business relationships with Israel, according to The Diamondback.

Gov. Martin O’Malley returned from visits to Israel and Jordan last week, announcing the formation of the Maryland/Israel Development Partnership.

The partnership is aimed to connect state businesses with businesses in Israel, playing off the strength of both economies in the cybersecurity and life sciences sectors, The Diamondback reported.
