Cyber Lab

Four Pillars of Cyber Security: Predict, Prevent, Detect and Respond. The image is a graphic showing all four pillars with a symbol representing each one.

Located in EA311, our Cyber Lab offers students and faculty a unique opportunity to test offensive and defensive cyber security strategies in a dedicated air-gapped network. We also offer a variety of different professional services to help organizations with testing, simulations, and more.

Our Cyber Lab also features demonstration sites which explore the importance of cyber security and understanding the risks that individuals, work places, and technologies can face. A perfect example of this concept is our Smart Home demonstration site; which you can learn more about under the "Demonstration Sites and Research Projects" section below.

Experiential Learning

Our lab offers many unique ways of providing experiential learning to our students. Each semester, we have students working for us as part of placements working on applied research projects, demonstration sites, and ongoing operations. This allows the students to apply a wide variety of skills and knowledge taught in our programs to real-life projects. Students are able to use the lab environment to apply the knowledge learned in class under the guidance of our expert cyber technicians.

Technical Cyber Training

Customized technical simulations and scenarios based on the specific needs of your organization.

Simulation/Scenario Creation

Customized simulations and scenarios based on the specific needs of your organization.

Product Testing

Test your product in our airtight network. We can simulate either one specific type of attack, or a variety of attacks and our cyber technologists will identify all vulnerabilities and potential risks. A report detailing the vulnerabilities, testing results and recommendations will be created after the testing.

Product Development

Our team of cyber and IoT technologists can develop, and help with the development of new products.

Network Design

Allow us to design an efficient, secure network for your company.

Network Segmentation

We will perform an assessment of your current network, then implement segmentation processes. Segmentation increases the security of your network, provides better access control of your network – including setting up a guest network, and decreasing security risks and impacts.

Vulnerability Testing

Our cyber team will perform a vulnerability scan on your network to show potential weaknesses to know security threats. A report will be generated that summarizes the vulnerabilities, their severity and remediation steps.

Penetration Testing

Is your network or web application secure? Are your staff well informed and well trained in potential cyber incidents? Is your cyber policy thorough? Our team of cyber technologists will use a variety of tools and techniques to test your infrastructure/devices.

 

A report will be generated to show the weaknesses in your system, policies and staff. The report will also detail if our staff was able to compromise the network, how, what they were able to access, and how to strengthen your network and policies to prevent incidents.

Internet of Things Projects (Industry Funded)

Projects related to integrating IoT devices and IoT networks with your current infrastructure.

Cybers Scurity Research Projects

Projects related to integrating cybersecurity.

Cyber Research

Our cyber researchers will help you with any research initiatives you wish to undertake. Are you looking to learn more about a specific vulnerability? Threats to your market or examples of attacks already attempted on similar organizations?
