US Cyber Command Academic Engagement Network (AEN)
The University of Maryland Carey School of Law was selected, as the first law school, to be part of the US Cyber Command’s Academic Engagement Network. The goal of the AEN is to foster relationships between cutting edge academic institutions and the entire US Cyber Command enterprise.
Maryland Carey Law was chosen by US Cyber Command due to the Law School’s strong cyber law program, developed and lead by CHHS. The academic partnership with US Cyber Command provides a mutually beneficial relationship between the US Cyber Command, CHHS and Maryland Carey Law and will include, regular “Tech Talks,” collaborative projects, internship and recent grad opportunities, mentorships, and more.

CHHS Director Michael Greenberger and CHHS Cybersecurity Director Markus Rauschecker are members of the Maryland Cybersecurity Council, which is chaired by the Maryland Attorney General.
