Science Applications International Corporation has teamed up with the University of Maryland to support efforts that promote education, research, and technology development in cybersecurity.

SAIC will coordinate and share cyber-related research between the UMD Cybersecurity Center and SAIC’s Cyber Innovation Center to leverage each center’s resources, alliances and diverse perspectives to create cutting-edge methods to shared challenges.

“Together, SAIC and UMD are working to find new ways to help the nation and inspire future generations through research, innovation and education, while also helping to sustain growth of Maryland’s economic development,” said Larry Cox, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager.

SAIC already has an existing partnership in place with UMD: At the school’s A. James Clark School of Engineering, the firm sponsors the Maryland Technology Enterprise Institute Venture Accelerator Program with seed funding to start up new companies. At the university’s Robert H. Smith School of Business and School of Public Policy, SAIC supports research, workshops and case studies on the cyber supply chain, including previous work with the University’s Supply Chain Management Center developing a cyber supply-chain assurance reference model.
