DSC 1552  Critical Infrastructure Protection credits: 3

This course introduces participants to the Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) process that is used to protect the people, physical entities, and cyber systems that are critical to many facilities. This course will guide students in the systematic protection of critical infrastructures. In addition, the course will introduce decision sequences that assist current and future leaders in determining the degree and type of protection necessary for various facilities. The course will introduce a time-efficient and resource-restrained practice that ensures the protection of only those infrastructures upon which survivability, continuity of operations, and mission success depend.
