Cybersecurity Club

MD Cyber Security ClubThe University of Maryland Cybersecurity Club is a student-run organization at the University of Maryland, College Park. Members and leaders of the club are currently pursuing studies in computer science, computer engineering, and electrical engineering, and other disciplines. 

The club's main purpose is to provide students who are interested in cybersecurity with the technical resources needed to advance their computer security careers. The club achieves this mission by organizing monthly meetings to discuss and practice hands-on cybersecurity concepts including, but not limited to, network security, digital forensics, penetration testing, secure coding, cryptography, and reverse engineering. On top of this, we invite local companies and organizations to speak at our meetings and promote their work in computer security.

The club's competition team meets weekly throughout the semester to compete in cyber security competitions. These meetings allow the team to practice applying cybersecurity concepts, both offensive and defensive, in a competitive context against other universities from around the world. The team won 1st place at the Virginia Tech Cybersecurity Summit in 2016, and 2nd place at CyberSkyline 2016!
