What’s Still Running? The Impact of COVID-19 On Critical Infrastructure 

Essential Critical Infrastructure workers
The COIVD-19 coronavirus has impacted our society in completely unprecedented ways. With many businesses changing their practices or being forced to shut down entirely in the wake of the pandemic, what’s going on with those critical services that affect all of us? How is the government handling the response right now, which critical infrastructure jobs have been mandated as essential, and how can we expect this to impact our future? 

Critical Infrastructure – How Refineries Work

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security website says “there are 16 critical infrastructure sectors whose assets, systems, and networks, whether physical or virtual, are considered so vital to the United States that their incapacitation or destruction would have a debilitating effect on security, national economic security, national public health or safety, or any combination thereof.1”   

Unmanned Systems: Keeping People and the Economy Alive in the Time of Social Distancing 

Holding a drone
Many industries have been slowly integrating the use of drones and other unmanned systems technology into their businesses for years now, but with social distancing globally in effect due to the recent COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, the time for companies to unleash the robots is now. Using unmanned systems to help us save more lives is a no-brainer, but rather than replacing our jobs they might actually help save us and the economy too.

Critical Infrastructure – The Benefits and Risks of IT and OT Coupling

Water treatment plant
In multiple industries, Information Technology (IT) is essential for systems and people to achieve peak performance by monitoring software and hardware issues. Industries designated as critical infrastructure rely as heavily on IT as any other industry, though due to their designation as essential services it is an imperative to ensure they remain operational above all other non-essential services.  

Capitol's Roots Are in Distance Learning 

Distance Learning
As universities across the nation switch to purely online classes, some are calling this a new look at education. I'd call it a retro take—we're going back to a mode of education Capitol perfected in 1927. In essence, we're returning to our roots as a correspondence school, only better. To start, let's take a peek at Capitol's origins.
