About_CID

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

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.
