About

Established in 2002, the Center for Infrastructure Protection and Homeland Security (CIP/HS) is based at George Mason University School of Law in Arlington, VA. This Center integrates law, policy, and technology to conduct comprehensive analyses and research, including resiliency studies, independent program assessments, security evaluations, educational initiatives, conferences, white papers, and recommendations relevant to improving the safety and security of the United States and its allies.

Through an extensive network of subject matter experts and partnerships with industry and Federal, State, and local officials, our team of dedicated professionals is uniquely positioned to address concerns across all critical infrastructure sectors.

The Center for Infrastructure Protection and Homeland Security (CIP/HS), originally called the CIP Project, is located in the George Mason University School of Law.  The Center received initial funding in 2002 and enjoyed subsequent renewal through the current fiscal year.  Executive management of the grant is through The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).  As the project expanded, on-going activities were leveraged to generate new funding that matured the project scope to address unexplored areas of critical infrastructure protection.  By 2004, the CIP Project grant had evolved into a family of projects under the overall umbrella of the Center for Infrastructure Protection and Homeland Security (CIP/HS), featuring core research (NIST-funded) and contracted research projects.  Additional funding sources include, but are not limited to, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Battelle, and SANDIA National Laboratories.

 

Very Respectfully,
