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.
Capabilities and educational opportunities
Policy Audit and Development

SAFE Lab faculty and students work together with our corporate partners to design and deliver customized training programs that deny social engineering.
We conduct vulnerability discovery with our corporate partners. Our applied research faculty has expertise in power management IoT devices and source code analysis.
We perform penetration testing to confirm and classify vulnerabilities on individual devices, across networks, in-web applications, social networks, and on-premises during physical security tests.
We provide implementation guidance to optimize security for devices, web applications, and network architectures.
