RITSEC is a student club dedicated to teaching "Security Through Community". RITSEC is dedicated to educating and preparing RIT students to compete in security-related competitions, as well as showcasing RIT student talent in the current world of security today. Whether you're new to computing security or a veteran, RITSEC has a place for you. All of the activities we host to promote this learning can be found on our 'Events' page.
We believe security is for anyone who wants to learn and center our activities around multiple aspects of security. This includes live individual and team-based competitions, hands-on training, student run research, and sponsor talks. Our security exercises cover a wide variety of areas in computing security, including penetration testing, Windows and Linux server hardening, web security, network services, and more!
