Retired Air Force Lt. Gen. Kenneth Minihan, former director of the National Security Agency, may have left government work a few years ago, but he is still focused on "toughening" the nation's critical infrastructure.

    Minihan, now principal at the Paladin Capital Group's Homeland Security Fund, said the United States is in the midst of a multidecade struggle with terrorism and natural disasters, and must invest in solutions designed to "protect, defend, cope and recover" its critical infrastructure assets.

    "The context of the fund is the toughening of the critical infrastructure of the U.S. and its strategic partners...so that when we're attacked again -- and we will be -- that we'll be OK," Minihan said. "We need to fix the equivalent of a flimsy cockpit door in the" information technology infrastructure.
