InfraGard is a non-profit, public-private partnership between the FBI and private businesses. The organization is an information/intelligence sharing and analysis effort serving the interests, and combining the knowledge base of, a wide range of private sector and government members; among them academic institutions, state and local law enforcement agencies.

History

The InfraGard program traces its formation back to 1996 when the FBI’s Cleveland Field Office engaged experts from private industry to provide expertise for a cybersecurity investigation. The collaboration was so successful that the program quickly expanded to other Field Offices, leading the FBI to assign national program responsibility for InfraGard to FBI Headquarters in Washington DC and local program responsibility to the FBI’s 56 field offices. In 2003, InfraGard’s private sector members officially incorporated InfraGard National as nonprofit 501(c)3 organization that retains its affiliation and partnership with the FBI.[1]
