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.
