To develop new methods to protect computer systems against hacking and cyberattacks, the university’s Maryland Cybersecurity Center has teamed up with the Baltimore-based CyberPointInternational Co. to launch collaborative research projects with faculty and students.

CyberPoint, which has about 90 employees, develops technology products and research aimed at tackling problems of online privacy, security and unauthorized access. While university officials have yet to begin any projects with the company, members of both sides of the partnership aim to enhance their research by covering different aspects of cybersecurity issues, including computer science, engineering, social sciences, economics and public policy.
