Most meetings are open to the public, but there are some sessions that are restricted to members only.

Why We Want to Engage You

Threat Talk

Approximately 80% – 90% of our Nation’s critical infrastructure is privately owned. Protecting these assets cannot be accomplished by the federal government alone. It requires coordinated action from numerous stakeholders – including government, the private sector, law enforcement, academia and concerned citizens.

 

InfraGard serves as a critical link that connects owners and operators with the entities that strive to protect their assets. It is a basic tenet of InfraGard that the more people sharing information about physical and cyber threats and vulnerabilities, as well as best security practices, the greater our chances of thwarting an attack and securing our Nation.

 

Please review our website to learn more about our mission, our area of responsibility, what our members are tasked with protecting, and how you can get involved.

Critical Infrastructure Sectors

The Nation's critical infrastructure provides the essential services that underpin American society. Proactive and coordinated efforts are necessary to strengthen and maintain secure, functioning, and resilient critical infrastructure – including physical and cyber assets, networks, and systems – that are vital to public confidence and the Nation's safety, prosperity, and well-being. To protect this resource, Presidential Policy Directive (PPD) 21 on Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience advances a national unity of effort to strengthen and maintain secure, functioning, and resilient critical infrastructure. The directive identifies the primary critical infrastructure sectors and identifies a sector-specific agency to lead protection efforts.  In our chapter, the 4 sectors highlighted below make up about 75% of our membership.  Learn more about each of the 16 critical infrastructure sectors, by navigating to our "Critical Infrastructure" page.
