Cyber Team & Club

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

What is the Duke cyber program?

Sponsored by the Duke Program in American Grand Strategy (AGS) and the Office of Information Technology (OIT), the cyber initiative educates members and the Duke community at large on cutting-edge tech issues through two main fronts: the Cyber Team, a competitive group that meets weekly in rigorous preparation for policy 'war room' competitions and technical hacking competitions; 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!

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 President Justin Sherman at or Vice President Becca DiLuzio at

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.

To learn more about the Team, from the application process to supporting its efforts, contact President Justin Sherman at or Vice President Becca DiLuzio at
