Write the Next Chapter of Cybersecurity in Ohio

Ohio has the tech talent, collaborative environment, and pro-tech legislation to support cybersecurity companies. Across the state, Ohio’s universities, businesses, governments, and citizens are investing in cybersecurity measures to protect and defend the interests of Ohioans and Ohio businesses. These investments strengthen Ohio’s position as leader in the fields of cybersecurity and data protection.

“We chose Ohio because of the business-friendly environment, the vibrant local community, access to a rich and growing talent pool, along with proximity to several world-class universities.”
Bala Ramaiah
Chief Executive Officer and Founder, ISSQUARED Inc.

In Ohio, you can…

Find top cybersecurity talent. There are 37 Higher Education Institutions with Cybersecurity programs in Ohio and 11 of these programs have National Security Agency (NSA) designations. Plus, Columbus has a higher concentration of cybersecurity talent than other major metro areas like Boston, Atlanta, or Austin.

 

Collaborate with both the public and private sectors. The Ohio Cyber Collaboration Committee (OC3) brings together more than 200 representatives from public, private, military, and educational organizations to strengthen Ohio’s cybersecurity infrastructure and workforce. And Ohio’s companies, universities, and federal agencies have built three consortiums to collaborate on cybersecurity including the Cincinnati-Dayton Cyber Corridor, Northeast Ohio Cyber Consortium, and Covail in central Ohio.

 

Work among existing cybersecurity companies. Industry leaders have found success locating their cyber operations in Ohio. Siemens opened their Cyber Security Operations Center in Milford in 2014. JPMorgan Chase has 1,000 workers in its Digital Security division in Columbus. NASIC, headquartered at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, is the DoD’s primary source for air and space intelligence. Booz Allen Hamilton expanded its Dayton-area location, making it one of its Digital Hubs.

 

Benefit from pro-tech legislation. Ohio’s cybersecurity ecosystem is accelerated thanks to key legislative actions. Companies are protected from legal liability in the event of a data breach, blockchain transactions are permitted, and a volunteer “cyber reserve” of experts is ready to assist local governments faced with ransomware or cybersecurity attacks

“Ohio has a sufficient number of higher education institutions that are effectively training their students to meet the growing demand for skilled workers required by technology companies like MCPc. It’s a great advantage to doing business in the state.”
Peter Anagnostos
Vice President of Marketing, Communications, and Community Outreach, MCPc
