CSD Projects

Through a practitioner-driven approach, CSD creates and deploys information resources—standards, frameworks, tools and technologies enabling seamless and secure interactions among homeland security stakeholders. With its wide-range of partnerships across federal agencies; state and municipal administrations and first responders; critical infrastructure sectors; Internet security researchers; universities; national laboratories and international organizations, CSD works to strengthen capabilities to communicate, share, visualize, analyze and protect information.

CSD leads the federal government’s efforts in funding cybersecurity research and development projects that result in transforming an idea to a deployable solution. Through an aggressive cybersecurity R&D lifecycle process—research, development, test, evaluation and transition to practice—CSD produces unclassified solutions that address today's complex challenges and can be implemented in both the public and private sectors.  In addition to being innovative, the division develops usable technologies, tools and techniques to defend, mitigate, and secure current and future systems, networks and critical infrastructures against cyber-attacks.
