Security, Intelligence and Critical Infrastructure
Capitol Tech Opportunities
Here's some of the ways that we prepare and connect you with the field of security intelligence and critical infrastructure
Critical Infrastructure Center (CIC)
Learn how to protect the 16 sectors of critical infrastructure, which the U.S. government designated as vital to the day-to-day operations of the U.S. These sectors need cybersecurity, and other forms of protection, so we can maintain our lives. From the most basic aspects of life—having clean air to breathe and water to drink—to the more complex— coordinating airplane traffic and securing nuclear reactors, life as we know it depends on these sectors.
