InfraGard Pittsburgh Presents:
Leveraging Collaboration to Combat Cyber Threats
The cyber threats of today have no boundaries. This creates challenges that can only be addressed through leveraging all resources available. The National Cyber-Forensics & Training Alliance (NCFTA) is a successful working model for the necessity of collaboration. The NCFTA is a non-profit corporation leveraging subject-matter experts from both the public and private sectors to address the newest complex and international cyber threats. The purpose of this meeting is to better understand a key collaborative resource in our region, and receive threat updates from the Department of Homeland Security and FBI Cyber Headquarters.

Time: 1:30pm to 3:30pm

The agenda will include an organizational overview and cyber threat briefing by NCFTA, and regional threat updates from the Department of Homeland Security and FBI Cyber Headquarters who collaborate with NCFTA.

When & Where
The InfraGard program is a public / private cooperative effort dedicated to improving our national security. InfraGard consists of chapters throughout the United States and has thousands of members. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) leads the U.S. Government side of InfraGard. The private sector side of InfraGard is led by a non-profit corporation, the InfraGard National Members Alliance, which consists of local InfraGard Members Alliances throughout the country. An InfraGard “chapter” refers to the local FBI, the local InfraGard Members Alliance, and the local InfraGard members working together. “InfraGard” is a registered service mark of the FBI.
InfraGard provides both formal and informal channels for the exchange of information about our nation’s critical infrastructures and key resources. InfraGard's continuing mission is to increase information and intelligence sharing between the FBI (and other government agencies) and InfraGard members to strengthen the defense of our nation.
InfraGard Pittsburgh is a cooperative effort of the FBI Pittsburgh Division and the InfraGard Pittsburgh Members Alliance. InfraGard Pittsburgh registered its first member in October 1999 and since then has grown to more than 500 members strong. InfraGard Pittsburgh strives to host unique events and build valuable relationships between individual members, as well as between InfraGard members and the FBI.
