What is InfraGard?

InfraGard is a partnership between the FBI and the private sector. It is an association of persons who represent businesses, academic institutions, state and local law enforcement agencies, and other participants dedicated to sharing information and intelligence to prevent hostile acts against the U.S. Each InfraGard Members Alliance (IMA) is geographically linked with a FBI Field Office, providing all stakeholders immediate access to experts from law enforcement, industry, academic institutions and other federal, state and local government agencies. By utilizing the talents and expertise of the InfraGard network, information is shared to mitigate threats to our nation's critical infrastructures and key resources. Collaboration and communication are the keys to protection. Providing timely and accurate information to those responsible for safeguarding our critical infrastructures, even at a local level, is paramount in the fight to protect the United States and its resources.

Partnership is our key resource

As Americans, our lifestyle, economy, and national security are supported by a complex framework of businesses and services. The central role of these critical infrastructures and key resources (CIKR), however, makes them especially vunerable as targets for both physical and cyber attacks.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation's (FBI) priority programs share the common goal of protecting the nation's infrastructure and resources against threats posed by criminals and foreign adversaries. In support of their mission, Bureau teams including Cyber, Counterterrorism, Counterintelligence and others rely on close dialogue across government, but also benefit substantially from outside collaboration.


Critical Infrastructure Sectors

There are 16 critical infrastructure sectors whose assets, systems, and networks, whether physical or virtual, are considered so vital to the United States that their incapacitation or destruction would have a debilitating effect on security, national economic security, national public health or safety, or any combination thereof.


InfraGard National Members Alliance

InfraGard National Members Alliance (INMA) is a non-profit Delaware Corporation with a 501(c)3 status. The INMA is comprised of 84 separate 501(c)3 InfraGard Member Alliances (IMAs) that represent over 37,000 InfraGard Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) nationwide.
