InfraGard’s vetted membership includes: business executives, entrepreneurs, lawyers, security personnel, military and government officials, IT professionals, academia and state and local law enforcement—all dedicated to contributing industry-specific insight and advancing national security. NJ InfraGard is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization comprised of members across NJ.
InfraGard is a public and private sector alliance whose mission is to share information and help protect critical infrastructure. It is a national program which was initiated in 1996 by the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) Cleveland Field Office with private industry experts. The collaboration was so successful that the program quickly expanded to other Field Offices, leading the FBI to assign national program responsibility for InfraGard to FBI Headquarters in Washington DC and local program responsibility to the FBI’s 56 field offices. In 2003, InfraGard’s private sector members officially incorporated InfraGard National as nonprofit 501(c)3 organization that retains its affiliation and partnership with the FBI.
The New Jersey Chapter of InfraGard is administered locally by an elected board of directors and chapter membership, which is composed of businesses large and small, educational institutions as well as various agency partners.
The New Jersey Chapter of InfraGard plans in person and virtual meetings typically on the third Tuesday of specific months, with the exception of a summer break. Some Chapter meetings are open, which means that non-members are welcome to attend, and some Chapter meetings are closed, or limited to secure members only. Information regarding the open meetings will be provided. Chapter meetings are oriented toward education, awareness and information sharing, and offer presentations by security professionals, member and non-member, government and private. Chapter members actively participate in information sharing leading to support and protection of critical infrastructure
