Duke Cyber, sponsored by the Duke Program in American Grand Strategy (AGS) and the Duke Office of Information Technology (OIT), is a student-led organization that brings together undergraduates and graduates interested in exploring the purpose, roles, and implications of 21st century technology.
We engage students on cutting-edge cyber issues through two fronts:
Cyber Club (undergraduate and graduates) hosts public events on topics such as tech companies/encryption and data privacy. This year, we’re also hosting the Duke Cyber Cup, a cyber competition based at Duke.
Cyber Team (undergraduates only) is a competitively selected group that meets weekly for briefings with cyber experts from industry, academia, think tanks, and government in preparation for both policy-geared competitions (like the Atlantic Council’s Cyber 9/12) and technical hacking competitions (such as the Southeast Regional Cyber Defense Competition).

Want to learn about the intersections of technology, diplomacy, and international security? Interested in how emerging technologies like AI and 5G will impact economic growth, cybersecurity, and global governance? Apply to the Cyber Team, or attend a Cyber Club event, and hear all about it.

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!
Previous speakers have spanned future of war strategist Peter W. Singer, former PDDNI Stephanie O'Sullivan, and NSA executive Deb Crawford. To get more information on the Club, contact co-presidents Aden (email@example.com) or Jess (firstname.lastname@example.org)

The Cyber Team
The Cyber Team is a competitive subset of the Cyber Club, which attends policy 'war room' competitions such as the Atlantic Council's Cyber 9/12 and technical hacking competitions such as the PCDC. We bring together students looking for a rigorous, hands-on “crash course” in cybersecurity that mixes weekly expert presentations with mock security briefs, technical exercises, and crisis simulations.
