Cybersecurity Visiting Student Research (CyberVSR) Program

* Sponsored by Global Cybersecurity Institute and RIT Global

Purpose: Provide undergraduate and graduate students in the United States and internationally to

  • gain research experiences in the broad area of cybersecurity with RIT faculty and peers of complementary skillsets and experiences, and
  • immerse in an inclusive and culturally enriched and diverse environment for personal and professional development.

Please visit CyberVSR 2020 for last summer's research projects and participants.

CyberVSR Symposium (August 10, 9-12noon EDT, GMT-4)

(co-located with RUNCyber Webinar Series in collaboration with colleagues in Ireland and Northern Ireland)

This year, we have 15 CyberVSR students from Brazil, Uruguay, India, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Poland, and USA working with RIT GCI faculty on a variety of research topics in cybersecurity. These students will join 14 other students from RIT and partner universities in Ireland and Northern Ireland to participate in the annual CyberVSR Symposium to showcase their summer research. The symposium will be virtual where each student will show a 2-min pre-recorded lighting talk video, followed by live Q&A with the symposium participants. 

The Symposium program may be accessed here. Colleagues, partners, friends, and prospective students are welcome to register ( and participate in any part of the Symposium.
