Cybersecurity Team

The UMGC team ranks among the top cyber warriors in the world.

The University of Maryland Global Campus Cybersecurity Competition Team is a powerful force, dominating in cybersecurity games around the world. Our Cybersecurity Competition Team is composed of students, alumni, and faculty representing the cybersecurity and IT programs at UMGC. Through the Cybersecurity Competition team, students gain experience and build skills, learning collaboratively with fellow cybersecurity students and faculty, and networking with employers. To prepare for competitions, students detect and combat cyber attacks in UMGC’s Virtual Security Lab and work through case studies in an online classroom. The team competes in digital forensics, penetration testing, and computer network defense.
