“Super Bowl 50” Norwich University computer security program part of major security event, Super Bowl 50
Norwich University was the only educational institution invited to participate in support of the public safety team tasked with safeguarding Super Bowl 50.
With support from over 60 students working at its campus based Global Threat Observatory, Norwich cybersecurity students and faculty collaborated with Levi’s Stadium – the host for the event – and with the Super Bowl 50 Critical Infrastructure & Cyber Protection Sub Committee, the represented agencies and their personnel.
This committee was led by Detective Sergeant Ray Carreira ’96 of the Santa Clara Police Department, the lead law enforcement agency for the event. Throughout 2015 CSIA students worked with this team in preparation for this globally televised event and formed partnerships with leading software developers to support their work.
