New York Metro InfraGard Members Alliance
FBI "Open House"
On Tuesday, February 21, the NY Metro InfraGard Members Alliance, in conjunction with the FBI NY Office, is hosting its first annual "InfraGard Open House". This new series of educational meetings is designed to engage the public and private sectors at a more intimate level to enhance information sharing amongst organizations in the same (and cross) industry.
Due to the sensitive nature of the materials, this meeting shall be restricted to secured InfraGard members, appropriate law enforcement personnel, invited industry leaders, and special guests or subject matter experts.
- Members highlight their organization's contributions to the protection of their sector or national security - either through intelligence gathering or subject matter expertise.
- Local FBI senior leaders provide an overview of the trends and areas for private sector support.

There is some confusion when an InfraGard member goes to MalwareInvestigator.gov and selects the InfraGard channel, it drops back to the InfraGard secure portal home page. Note: the InfraGard member needs to be already logged into the InfraGard portal for the proper redirection to take place.
Government, business, and individual participation in the FBI's InfraGard Program continually unifies efforts to protect and enhance our nation's critical infrastructure. Members of these communities are encouraged to share their industry's workflow, lessons learned, and best practices through social and business-related events.

Protect Our Infrastructure
Individuals protect our country! One person can make a difference.
Since our nation is comprised of systems (people, businesses, buildings, highways, farms, communications, etc.), it is important to sustain and continually improve system operations.
One way to ensure these systems continue to benefit the people, is to protect them from natural disaster, human error or terror; and set up recovery actions in the event misfortune can not be avoided.
The protection of our nation is a collaborative effort in which all citizens hold some level responsibility. Your contribution(s) are absolutely invaluable.
