Why Cybersecurity?

Cybersecurity has emerged as a critical domain of global competition that reaches across the social, economic, political and military realms of influence.

The infusion of the Internet and its related networked technologies into nearly every aspect of society, business, and government presents a target of opportunity for adversaries. As a result, nations and international organizations are developing new operational doctrines, advanced cyberwarfare capabilities, cybersecurity enhancements and the necessary domain-focused human capital needed to achieve or maintain their interests in cyberspace.


UMBC provides technical and managerial training education to respond to Maryland’s and the nation’s needs for qualified cybersecurity professionals.
