Cyber Mission Acceleration driven by a culture of perpetual curiosity

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.
