When & Where
InfraGard is a Partnership between Private Industry and the U.S. government (represented by the FBI). The InfraGard initiative was developed to encourage the exchange of information by the government and the private sector members.
Private sector members and an FBI field representative form local area chapters. These chapters set up their own boards to govern and share information within the membership. Each chapter is also part of an organization which is InfraGard.
The National InfraGard Program began as a pilot project in 1996, when the Cleveland FBI Field Office asked local computer professionals to assist the FBI in determining how to better protect critical information systems in the public and private sectors. From this new partnership, the first InfraGard Chapter was formed to address both cyber and physical threats.
