Safety and Security

CNA Safety and Security (SAS) is a national leader in supporting homeland security, public safety, and emergency operations at all levels of government.

As part of CNA's Institute for Public Research, SAS uses research and analysis to deliver solutions that improve decision-making during crisis operations and develop innovative answers to challenging safety and security problems. Our applied expertise allows first responders, emergency managers, public health and agriculture professionals, homeland security practitioners, and corporate and citizen partners to integrate risk-management policy, planning, and operations and to develop and sustain prevention, protection, response, and recovery capabilities at a national level.
