Cybersecurity complex open for business
More than one wave of infections swept across the globe in 2020.
Cybercriminals used the COVID-19 pandemic to up their attacks and create a pandemic of their own. According to the FBI’s Cyber Division, the number of complaints increased 400 percent from what they were seeing pre-coronavirus.
This cyber pandemic is just one of many cybersecurity issues that RIT experts are working to address in the new Global Cybersecurity Institute (GCI).
Late last fall, the GCI opened the doors to its 52,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility on campus. With the institute, RIT is on its way to becoming one of the best places in the world for cybersecurity education, training, and research.
