Cyber Team & Club

The cyber arm of the Duke Program in American Grand Strategy. 

What is the Duke Cyber Team?

In 2018, juniors Justin Sherman and Rebecca DiLuzio created the Duke Cyber Team and Cyber Club, motivated by the desire to expand the depth of cyber-related activity on campus. Sponsored by the Duke Program in American Grand Strategy (AGS), the cyber initiative educates members and the Duke community at large on cutting-edge cyber issues through two fronts: the Cyber Team, a competitive group that meets weekly in rigorous preparation for 'war rooms' like the Atlantic Council's Cyber 9/12; and the Cyber Club, which hosts public events open to the entire Duke community.

The Cyber Club

The Cyber Club hosts public talks every few weeks, where Club members will have the opportunity to hear talks from cyber experts in government, academia, think tanks, and private industry. It's a fun but low-commitment way to learn more about the ever-changing cyber world around us! Our speakers for this semester include Deb Crawford, executive at the National Security Agency; Stephanie O'Sullivan, former Principal Deputy Director of National Intelligence; Peter W. Singer, Strategist at New America and author of LikeWar: The Weaponization of Social Media; and Jeffrey Ritter, Lecturer at the University of Oxford's Department of Computer Science. To get more information on the Club, contact President Justin Sherman at

The Cyber Team

The Cyber Team is a competitive subset of the Cyber Club, which attends 'war room'-like competitions such as the Atlantic Council’s Cyber 9/12. We bring together students looking for a rigorous, hands-on “crash course” in cyber strategy that mixes weekly expert presentations with mock security briefs and crisis simulations. To learn more about the Team, from the application process to supporting its efforts, contact President Justin Sherman at
