The Answer to a Gaping Vulnerability in U.S. National SecurityThe Answer to a Gaping Vulnerability in U.S. National Security One of the most recognized, yet under-addressed aspects of Homeland Security is the safeguarding of mission-critical data centers. More and more vital information and technology is being centered in “data farms” built by utilities, the military and government, as well as essential private corporations. This involves everything from phone systems to national strategic capabilities to the internet.
Recent reports by the Council on Foreign Relations and the Business Roundtable (an association of chief executive officers of leading U.S. companies) have warned that despite the Bush Administration and Congress’s urging since 9/11 that the private sector step up its efforts to protect these critical information nerve centers, little has been done.
The consequences of leaving these critical information-age assets vulnerable are tremendous – both to national security and to the smooth and efficient conduct of business nation-wide and world-wide.
The pending acquisition of Total Site Solutions (TSS), www.totalsiteteam.com, by a team of experienced homeland security experts and seasoned entrepreneurs may change all this. Fortress America Acquisition Corporation has gathered financing to expand the mission-critical expertise of TSS so that more of the nation’s critical infrastructure is protected.
TSS has developed data security solutions for the US military, the National Security Administration, the defense industry, key aspects of the financial markets, health and hospital corporations and other essential interests in the private and public sectors. TSS safeguards against everything from terrorist activities and natural disasters to wide-ranging power outages.
