The Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) highest priority is to safeguard the American people. DHS is committed to a relentless resilience, striving to prevent attacks, responding decisively to natural and manmade disasters, and advancing our prosperity and economic security long into the future.

MITRE shares this priority by operating the Homeland Security Systems Engineering and Development Institute™ (HSSEDI), a federally funded research and development center of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. HSSEDI brings systems thinking to countering terrorist threats and protecting our borders, securing our infrastructure while enabling travel and trade, and strengthening the cybersecurity of federal civilian networks.
