NY Metro Sector-specific Portal Forums / List servers (currently being evaluated as options)

Goal #2: Enable protection of critical infrastructure starting within the area of responsibility (AoR)

Goal #3 Make Cybersecurity Education Accessible for all

All InfraGard chapters are geographically linked with one of the FBI’s 56 Field Offices, enabling law enforcement and the American business community to collaborate on localized educational programs, training events and information-sharing initiatives that help mitigate threats and promote safety and security. 
Exemplifying leadership, patriotism and purpose, InfraGard’s vision is to provide meaningful contributions towards preserving human life and making our nation a safer, more resilient place for all.

While our organization did not set out to achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals specifically, we have prioritized efforts to align with several of the goals. We uphold the highest standards of corporate, civic, and social responsibility, as well as traditional philanthropy, in order to foster true social innovation in which purpose and profit are uniquely aligned to propel the organization forward. We are a mission-driven organization dedicated to improving and securing our world.

This is accomplished by forging consensus and committing to our shared vision.

Rather than focusing exclusively on short-term gains, we consider the big picture in order to create shared value and long-term benefits for all people and our planet.

We've broadened our partnerships to include the international community.

We have evolved and will continue to evaluate how we operate and the most effective ways to make a difference.

Our operational capabilities are dependent upon our funding, and we continue to evolve and assess ways to create self-sufficiency to support our programs and expand upon our capacity to do good work.

InfraGard protects U.S. critical infrastructure - those systems and assets - whether physical or virtual that 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 of those matters. The private sector owns approximately 80% – 90% of our Nation’s critical infrastructure. 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. It is a basic tenet of InfraGard that the more people sharing information about physical and cyber threats and vulnerabilities and best security practices, the greater our chances of thwarting an attack and securing our Nation.

We've transitioned to a virtual approach for the majority of our events. We've taken measures to convert all of our records to digital format, resulting in a decrease in the amount of paper we utilize. We've disposed of obsolete technology. We also carpool or utilize public transportation to any off-site events, lowering our carbon footprint. We create programs to raise awareness and educate our community in order to improve the quality of life and the security of our essential infrastructure.
