Eaton Cybersecurity SAFE Lab

Through the SAFE Lab, RIT students have access to paid, cooperative work experiences to apply the knowledge that they have acquired from coursework in penetration testing and forensics.

The Eaton Cybersecurity SAFE (Security Assessment and Forensic Examination) Lab provides students with a living laboratory environment to gain experience in solving real-world problems for partner companies. The Lab is designed to operationalize the ongoing research within the Global Cybersecurity Institute.
