NCF Leaders Testify before MD Senate Committee Re: Cybersecurity Education

NCF President & CEO Laura Nelson and NCF Director of Education Mark Loepker are among NCF leaders and staff who testified before Maryland Senate committees in early 2022 regarding a variety of cybersecurity education related bills.

Most recently in March 2022, Ms. Nelson appreciated the opportunity to testify in support of SB 753SB - The Cyber Workforce Accelerator (CWA) Act of 2022. We would like to thank MD Sen. Katie Fry Hester for this important opportunity. See below for a link to read Ms. Nelson's remarks.
