Each year the importance of information and network security grows for businesses, government institutions, professional and educational organizations, and individuals. At the same time the complexity and variety of security threats and solutions grows.

IITís IT Security & Forensics Lab develops and supports an experimental environment for cyber-security and digital forensic training, collaboration, evaluation and research. The lab provides students the opportunity to develop hands-on expertise in working in the field of security, forensics and disaster and data recovery.

Several great ideas and many of the student lab projects have been recognized with awards, presentations to professional societies, coverage in newspapers, mention in trade publications and offers of employment. Some projects have evolved into startup companies with innovative products.
