The Center for Infrastructure Defense (CID) focuses on the continued operation of critical military and civilian infrastructure in the presence of accident, failure, and attack.

Our team combines the expertise of senior scholars with a highly motivated student body consisting of military officers and government employees from the U.S. and its global partners.

We serve as trusted advisors to the military, government, and private sector. We stand ready to address both long-term and emergent issues related to national and international infrastructure systems.
