The InfraGard Pittsburgh Members Alliance (IPMA) is an alliance with the FBI’s Pittsburgh Field Office and individuals committed to protecting the nation’s critical infrastructure. Our chapter’s footprint covers Western Pennsylvania. It is our mission to improve and extend information sharing between critical infrastructure stakeholders, in both the private and public sectors, with the government, particularly the FBI, to protect those infrastructure assets from physical and/or cyber attack. As a result of this exchange, timely information and intelligence is delivered, investigations are initiated and/or enhanced, vital economic and national security assets are protected, and lasting relationships are formed between law enforcement and infrastructure owners/operators.
IPMA coordinates monthly meetings on a broad spectrum of infrastructure-related issues and topics. Most meetings are open to the public, but there are some sessions which are restricted to members only. In addition to monthly meetings, the chapter has special events including tours of Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) and new member/networking sessions, as well as participates and/or supports a number of other programs and events throughout the year.

Why We Want to Engage You
It is estimated that between 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. The more people sharing information about physical and cyber threats and vulnerabilities and best security practices, the more secure our Nation will be.
