Cyber Mission Acceleration Driven by a Culture of Perpetual Curiosity

DreamPort Facility

Our Vision

The future of global cybersecurity requires that our nation continuously maximizes its ability to push the boundaries of how we think about cybersecurity. MISI is a boundaryless organization designed to disrupt traditional innovation. MISI was founded for the purpose of helping organizations accelerate the discovery of viable cybersecurity and related technologies. The goal of the organization is to maximize the ability of our clients to achieve an understanding of solutions from non-traditional sources that can be combined, if needed, with more mature technology to result in powerful new capabilities.

MISI leverages our cyber Mission Accelerator® methodology to operate programs and facilities like our 40,000 square foot nationally acclaimed, DreamPort Cyber Mission Accelerator®. DreamPort was created in partnership with US Cyber Command as a non-government owned or operated independent facility for the purpose of applying MISI's cyber Mission Accelerator® methodology to provide US Cyber Command, its cyber national mission forces and partners with continuous cyber capability innovation.

ALERT: DHS Issues Shields Up Advisory

Every organization in the United States is at risk from cyber threats that can disrupt essential services and potentially result in impacts to public safety. Over the past year, cyber incidents have impacted many companies, non-profits, and other organizations, large and small, across multiple sectors of the economy.

Notably, the Russian government has used cyber as a key component of their force projection over the last decade, including previously in Ukraine in the 2015 timeframe. The Russian government understands that disabling or destroying critical infrastructure—including power and communications—can augment pressure on a country's government, military and population and accelerate their acceding to Russian objectives.

While there are not currently any specific credible threats to the U.S. homeland, we are mindful of the potential for the Russian government to consider escalating its destabilizing actions in ways that may impact others outside of Ukraine.

Based on this situation, CISA has been working closely with our critical infrastructure partners over the past several months to ensure awareness of potential threats—part of a paradigm shift from being reactive to being proactive.

CISA recommends all organizations–regardless of size–adopt a heightened posture when it comes to cybersecurity and protecting their most critical assets. Read More
