Description:
Businesses have become increasingly global and interdependent - the traditional enterprise has become the "extended enterprise." Disruptions anywhere in this "extended enterprise" can have dramatic and often unexpected impacts upon all the organizations involved. In recent years, acts of terrorism have introduced new and dangerous disruptions to business and society. Although we often think of national security from a governmental and military perspective, businesses play an extremely important role since much of a nation's infrastructure is run by the private sector.

This group will perform research, develop courseware (including case study materials), and facilitate discussions amongst academia, governments, and business on these important topics. Several current sponsors have provided seed funds for this new area of research, and we seek realtionships with other organizations to further develop both thought leadership and practical strategies around security of the extended enterprise.
