University of Maine at Augusta


There can be no doubt that concern for privacy and security of cyberspace systems against unauthorized access to data is of paramount concern, not only within the U.S., but also throughout the world.  Therefore, the Maine Chapter of the Fulbright Association and the University of Maine at Augusta (UMA) have teamed up to present an event that focuses on the timely topic of Global Cybersecurity. A panel of scholars in this field will examine the most serious threats to cyber security globally, what cyber attacks we can anticipate for the mid-term elections in the U.S., what risk management and mitigation of IT assets entail, effective breach response plans, and more .  And, what better partner than UMA to co-host this event! UMA was awarded the National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense designation from the National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security and offers acknowledged quality programs in Cybersecurity education ( ).

UMA was also ranked as one of the nation’s 2021 Best Online Bachelor’s Degree Programs by U.S. News and World Report. Maine Senator Angus King, who sits on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, has been invited. Should he confirm, this program will be adjusted to include that visit.

Security teams are increasingly confronted with targeted attacks in growing volumes. Most incident response team members will face their first cyber attack on thejob. Rather than training organizations by means of presentations and table top exercises, the Maine Cyber Range provides them with an immersive training environment that mirrors the infrastructure and simulates attacks in unprecedented accuracy. During the Cyber Simulation Presentation, UMA students from the Cybersecurity Program demonstrate a customized scenario for a ransomware attack and address intervention strategies, processes, and training of importance for building cybersecure organizational environments.
