What is Infragard?
Infragard® is a Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) program that began in the Cleveland Field Office in 1996. It was a local effort to gain support from the information technology industry and academia for the FBI’s investigative efforts in the cyber arena. The program expanded to other FBI Field Offices, and in 1998 the FBI assigned national program responsibility for Infragard® to the former National Infrastructure Protection Center (NIPC) and to the Cyber Division in 2003. Infragard® and the FBI have developed a relationship of trust and credibility in the exchange of information concerning various terrorism, intelligence, criminal, and security matters.

Promoting Community Cyber Security (AWR-135)
Thursday, October 16, 2014 - 9am-4pm
The Promoting Community Cybersecurity (PCCS) course is designed to give participants an introduction to cybersecurity topics, methods, and processes, and to explore organizational responsibilities in the context of the community, state and nation. The course provides an overview of the steps taken within organizations to protect their cyber resources. The course also looks at that protection within the context of the broader community. Participants will explore the impact of the interconnections and dependencies introduced by information technology. Basic concepts of cybersecurity, network connectivity, threats, types of attacks, and the structure of the Community Cybersecurity Maturity Model (CCSMM) will be discussed. The basic characteristics of communities and organizations that exhibit good cybersecurity are examined through the use of case studies within the context of each CCSMM dimension. In addition, the interrelationships between the dimensions of the CCSMM and the dependency on each dimension for good cybersecurity are also discussed.
