the security of U.S. critical infrastructures. The goal of InfraGard is to

government can better discharge its law enforcement and national security responsibilities.

A forum for cross-sector and public-private dialog on reducing vulnerabilities, mitigating
risks, identifying strategic objectives, and sharing good information security practices.
The PCIS is open to all interested businesses as well as public sector participants.
It helps its participants to network with information security leaders from other industries and
government agencies and to learn about the latest developments on security issues that
affect both the public and private sectors. The PCIS is a non-profit organization
run by companies and private sector associations representing each of the critical infrastructure
industries. The CIAO provides support for the PCIS and government officials are
invited to participate in Partnership meetings on a collaborative basis.
