Norwich Students Boost Cybersecurity at Super Bowl 50

Many colleges say they offer students “hands-on learning” and “real-world experience.” But Norwich’s cybersecurity program, already considered one of the best in the country, took it to a whole new level in February 2016. As the Denver Broncos battled the Carolina Panthers at Levi’s Stadium during Super Bowl 50, some 67 Norwich Computer Security and Information Assurance (CSIA) majors were hard at work behind the scenes. Based on site in Santa Clara, Calif., and at the Global Threat Observatory on the NU campus, the students culminated months of work in support of the Super Bowl 50 Critical Infrastructure and Cyber Protection Subcommittee. Detective Sergeant Ray Carreira ’96 of the Santa Clara Police Department, the lead law-enforcement agency for Super Bowl 50, spearheaded the subcommittee and made Norwich’s participation possible.
