Cybersecurity is one of UMBC’s strategic priorities — and we possess broad institutional capabilities and expertise in this dynamic and interdisciplinary field. Our interests and experience in cybersecurity are not just technical, but include the social behavioral and economic elements of cybersecurity as well.

UMBC’s Center for Cybersecurity (UCYBR) provides unified interdisciplinary academic and research leadership, partnership, innovation, and outreach in this critical discipline by streamlining our academic, research, workforce development, and technology incubation activities. Through UCYBR, UMBC is one of the few universities in the nation designated both a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense (CAE-CD) and National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Research (CAE-R) by the National Security Agency and has been a prominent NSF Federal CyberCorps/SFS participant since 2012.
