Cyber Security Initiative

The Dartmouth Cyber Security Initiative (CSI) is an ongoing collaboration between faculty, students, and staff within:


The CSI is focused on projects aimed at improving the security of the College's information systems. By coordinating research interests with practical concerns, the initiative has resulted in a number of innovative tools and procedures currently in use on production systems.


Ongoing goals of the initiative include:

  • Assess vulnerabilities of the infrastructure, desktops, and applications.
  • Make recommendations for improving the security of Dartmouth's assets.
  • Develop applications and procedures to improve the operational security of the College's information systems.
  • Train people to use more secure ways of accessing and transferring data, and to recognize security holes.


Every year the CSI holds a conference on information security and how it affects college campuses. For more information, see Securing the eCampus.
