Our vision is to create a safe digital neighborhood that is both resistant to cyber‐threats and resilient to man‐made or natural disasters, where our citizens, businesses, organizations and government can effectively and securely navigate, collaborate and conduct business to remain economically competitive in today’s fast‐changing technological environment. The secure cyber city model we establish in San Diego will empower our citizens and serve as a beacon for cities across North America and the world.
Our mission is to enable every San Diegan to live, work and play safely in the cyber world.
