Critical Infrastructure

Protecting our Nation’s

Critical Infrastructure

EMP attacks pose a very real threat to the US and our critical infrastructure systems. In March of 2019, President Trump announced an executive order meant to protect the United States from an electromagnetic pulse. The order directs all federal agencies to coordinate in assessing, planning and protecting against its risks from human and natural EMP threats.


TRITON Defense has a clear vision of how to protect critical assets in the event of an EMP.  All Resiliency plans have vulnerable aspects that can be protected by housing critical IT in our Modules.  We help keep systems running with EMP Shielded Facilities.
