Cyber Security Advisory Board

The Cyber Security Advisory Board exists to advise, assist, support and advocate for the Cyber Security Center and graduate and undergraduate programs in Cyber Security. Members share expert knowledge and industry experience and serve as a sounding board for senior University executives and as a body that can inspire change.

Advisory Board Responsibilities

  • Provide general guidance and advice relevant to industry trends surrounding Cyber Security.
  • Review and recommend updates to our Cyber Security curriculum.
  • Develop and recommend “best practice” technology approaches.
  • Provide introductions to possible strategic partners and sources of funding, and participate in meetings with such individuals or entities.
  • Contribute ideas and information about Cyber Security in various industries.
  • Develop global program marketing ideas/concepts.
  • Develop internship and career opportunities for University students and graduates.
  • Suggest possible Cyber Security conferences, training programs, and webinars.

Frequency of Meetings

  • There are two, 75 minute formal meetings each calendar year. Advisory Board members attend in person on campus in Jersey City or via video conference/teleconference.
  • Outside of these formal meetings, Advisory Board members advise Saint Peter’s on industry developments in Cyber Security through phone calls, emails and campus visits.
  • Since the field of Cyber Security is very dynamic and in the fore-front of the news, Saint Peter’s University calls an Advisory Board member to gain their insight on particular areas related to their expertise.
