Joshua Hartley, '16, Computer Security & Information Assurance Major

In high school, Joshua Hartley defended attacks on the gridiron as an offensive lineman. At Norwich, the computer programming phenom studied network defense for malware, cyber attacks, and other malfeasance as a CSIA major. Among other projects, Hartley joined the Norwich team that provided cybersecurity at Super Bowl 50 and served as the lead administrator for the Norwich Threat Analysis Center, a unique effort to deploy thousands of sensors to monitor and analyze attacks across the global Internet. “Even in one year, Norwich ... changed my work ethic,” the high-achieving Hartley says. “In high school, I didn’t perform nearly to my full capacity. When I got to Norwich, I put my full effort into every class and worked for perfection.” Hartley also picked up the guitar during his first year at Norwich. “I spend a lot of time programming. It’s nice to have a hobby that isn’t all ones and zeroes.”
