It aims to position us to successfully meet our mission in the coming years and decades. It serves as the interim strategy as we develop a longer-term strategic plan.

Detecting and delaying an intrusion or attack on a high-risk chemical facility is a critical component of a facility’s security.


The Fifth Generation of wireless technology, or 5G, will enable new innovation, new markets, and economic growth around the world. Tens of billions of new devices will be connected to the Internet through 5G technology. These connections will empower a vast array of new and enhanced critical services, from autonomous vehicles and telemedicine, to automated manufacturing and advances to traditional critical infrastructure, such as smart grid electricity distribution. Given 5G’s scope, the stakes for safeguarding these vital networks could not be higher. CISA is leading risk mitigation efforts across the federal government and is committed to working with government and industry partners to ensure the security and integrity of 5G technology in our nation.
