OS4621 Critical Infrastructure Analysis and Defense

The premise of this course is straightforward: our dependence on critical infrastructures makes us vulnerable to both deliberate and non-deliberate events that can disrupt our physical, economic, and social welfare. This course develops the literacy and competencies necessary to understand potential problems and realistic solutions for critical military and civilian infrastructure in the United States. Students gain experience in the use of "red teaming" analysis for evaluating infrastructure vulnerability through case studies on civilian and DoD/DoN systems, and through a course project.
