Cyber @ Salve is Salve Regina's cyber center. We promote an interdisciplinary approach to cybersecurity research, course offerings and programs to generate innovative ideas. Our faculty use their unique experience and breadth of expertise to work with students and the broader Rhode Island community to develop a more resilient cyberspace. Our program draws on theory, policy and technical approaches to develop solution sets that meet the needs of law enforcement, justice, national security and homeland security professionals at the local, state, regional, national and international levels.
The Cyber @ Salve program, through teaching and research, prepares the men and women of Salve Regina and the broader Rhode Island community for a contested and complex cyber world. We strive for excellence by expanding knowledge, developing skills and cultivating values through interdisciplinary cybersecurity course offerings, speaker series and programs. The liberal arts and professional programs offered at Salve Regina allow students to think creatively and make sound judgments while working towards universal justice - both online and off-line.
Salve Cybersecurity Club
Founded in 2016, the Cybersecurity Club raises awareness about cyber hygiene best practices across the Salve Regina community and provides a platform to dissect current cyber issues and recent incidents. The club advocates the intellectual growth of cybersecurity in each of its members and encourages them to participate in the Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy's Rhode Island Corporate Cybersecurity Initiative series. The club recently began competing in national competitions like the National Cyber League.
Club members spent their 2017 spring break attending the International Consortium for Minority Cybersecurity Professionals national conference and observing the Atlantic Council's Cyber 9/12 Challenge in Washington, D.C. Members of the club have also attended big-name conferences such as DEF CON, Black Hat and B-Sides Boston.
