Each year, the Carolina Cyber Center at Montreat College hosts RETR3AT, a conference designed to engage, educate, and raise awareness about cybersecurity locally, regionally, and globally. In its sixth year, RETR3AT goes beyond the “1s and 0s” approach to cybersecurity training, challenging attendees to think about how to lead in protecting their organization’s information within an ethical framework.
This Year’s Conference
Dates for RETR3AT 2021 coming soon! RETR3AT is designed for business, non-profit, and education professionals looking to strengthen the cybersecurity of their organizations through:
Better understand the cyber landscape regionally, nationally, and globally.
Get the tools necessary to do a cyber assessment of your organization.
Develop a practical plan to improve your organization’s cybersecurity measures.
“Montreat College is doing some very unique things to help build people who have the appropriate skills to secure cyberspace. Their cybersecurity program uses great technical detail and hands-on computer systems exercises. These elements, plus their focus on ethics and character, really differentiates Montreat’s cybersecurity program.”

“It was incredibly helpful to engage at Montreat College’s 2016 RETR3AT Cybersecurity Conference with other professionals entrusted as fiduciaries of their firm’s digital assets. The quality of RETR3AT was one I would expect to see in Charlotte, NC. It was also energizing was to see student participation in this visionary field of study.”
