Pioneering together with our partners in industry, academia, and government, we collaborate to enhance and secure systems and protect our nation.
We sometimes take our domestic safety and security for granted. Yet every day, our critical infrastructure—from transportation and telecommunications to elections and healthcare—is potentially at risk.
Here’s just one example: peer and rogue nation-states are capable of setting off a high-altitude electromagnetic pulse attack (HEMP). One attack could wipe out the U.S. power grid and destroy the systems we rely on for satellite communications, financial transactions, healthcare technology, transportation, and military command and control.
MITRE and our partners in industry, academia, and government are pioneering together to continually enhance and secure systems and protect our critical infrastructure against HEMPs and other risks. This includes:
- Providing data-driven guidance to state and local officials to ensure free and fair elections
- Helping predict disease outbreaks through wastewater analysis
- Working closely with government agencies to secure our nation’s borders and ports of entry
- Creating a dashboard tool for law enforcement that provides data analytics to thwart transnational organized crime, such as human trafficking
In addition to our team within the Homeland Security Systems Engineering and Development Institute™ (HSSEDI), we have access to expertise from every corner of our organization. Together, we tackle challenges that cut across the homeland security enterprise.
