The Homeland and Corporate Security Program at St. John’s University focuses on the issues
surrounding the protection of the national critical infrastructure from terrorism and other major
criminal acts. With approximately 85% of America’s critical infrastructure (energy, transportation,
telecommunications, agriculture, etc.) owned or controlled by private corporations, an unparalleled
working relationship has developed between DHS and the organizational security functions of
private business. The Homeland and Corporate Security Program explores this vital partnership and
provides students with a thorough solution-oriented understanding of the multifaceted issues
confronting protection professionals in the homeland and corporate security fields.
