InfraGard is a partnership between the FBI and the private sector. It is an association of persons who represent businesses, academic institutions, state and local law enforcement agencies, and other participants dedicated to sharing information and intelligence to prevent hostile acts against the U.S.
As an information-sharing and networking initiative, InfraGard serves the interests and combines the subject-matter expertise of a wide range of members. At its most basic level, InfraGard is a partnership between the FBI and private and public sector individuals. InfraGard “Chapters” are geographically linked with FBI Field Office territories and are a partnership between private sector-led InfraGard Members Alliances (“IMAs”) and the FBI. InfraGard Tampa Bay Members Alliance Inc. is one of those IMAs or Chapters.
The Tampa Bay Chapter covers Tampa, Clearwater, St. Petersburg and the surrounding counties and all 16 of the currently-defined DHS critical infrastructure sectors as well as four locally-designated sectors. Our Chapter is continually growing and has over 800 members governed by our Board of Directors.
These over 800 members are professionals who value knowledge and are consistently looking to connect with best-in-class peers and solutions to support their roles at organizations around our region.
