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 by the federal government through the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the National Infrastructure Protection Center (NIPC) in Washington D.C. The NIPC has since become part of the Department of Homeland Security. 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
