Special Agent, InfraGard Coordinator
FBI - Washington Field Office
InfraGard is a partnership between the FBI and the public and private sectors for the protection of our nation's critical infrastructure. At its core, InfraGard's strength and effectiveness is based upon the subject matter expertise of its trusted membership. It is a unique opportunity for both industry and government to unite in a cooperative effort of national security. From drinking water supplies to communications systems, chemical production processes to agricultural resources, Americans depend on a select group of critical infrastructures to sustain our way of life. Most of these systems and services are owned and operated by private industry. Therefore, the protection of our nation's infrastructure cannot be accomplished by the federal government alone. It requires coordinated action from numerous stakeholders - including government, the private sector, law enforcement, and concerned citizens.
InfraGard is the critical link that forms a tightly-knit working relationship across industry and government to improve and extend information sharing so timely intelligence is delivered, vital assets are protected, and trusted relationships are formed. During this session, you'll learn about the origins of the program, how it functions at the national and local levels, and hear some success stories.
