Center for Strategic Security Overview

Center for Strategic Security (CSS) The Center for Strategic Security develops and implements practical approaches and technical solutions to forestall severe threats to national and global security. Such threats include non-State or failed-State WMD-terrorism, insider threats, foreign acquisition of advanced US weapons and technology, sophisticated cyber attacks, infectious disease, compromised critical materials, supply chain vulnerabilities, and many others.
