Infragard North Texas

The primary purpose of the InfraGard North Texas Members Alliance is to assist in increasing the security of the United States national infrastructures through ongoing exchanges of information relevant to infrastructure protection and through education, outreach, and similar efforts. In addition to the benefits offered by the national InfraGard organization, there are several ways our local chapter accomplishes these objectives, including:

  • Local quarterly membership meetings focused on infrastructure protection
  • Sector-specific meetings and information exchanges (see Sector Chief Program)
  • Partnerships and discounts to training offerings with other organizations such as ISSA, Interface, and SecureWorld
  • Networking opportunities with peers within and across all sectors

Our chapter has offered all of the above including trainings classes and events covering:

  • Counterterrorism threats, including case studies of planned but prevented terrorism plots in the North Texas area
  • Active Shooter awareness as well as what to expect from the media should an active shooting occur at your business
  • Cyber Threats
  • Weapons of Mass Destruction
  • Counterintelligence and the Insider Threat
  • Violent Crimes, Top Ten Fugitives
  • Critical Incident Response
  • Picnic with the Dallas FBI Citizens Academy Alumni Association
  • Invitation to panel discussions  on cyber security
  • Invitation to the local National Cyber Security Summit Open House in conjunction with President Obama’s summit on cyber security and consumer protection
  • Sector-specific training for the public health/healthcare sector and emergency services sector on "Law Enforcement's Response to Ebola and other Communicable Diseases;" training hosted by the North Texas Crime Commission

The Federal Bureau of Investigation's (FBI) priority programs share the common goal of protecting the nation's critical infrastructures and key resources against threats and attacks. In support of their mission, Bureau teams, including Cyber, Counterterrorism, Counterintelligence, and others, rely not only on seamless collaboration and dialogue within government, but also with private sector and academic partners. This exchange of expertise, strategy, and actionable intelligence with the FBI and among partners is pivotal to mitigating cyber threats and dismantling criminal activity and terrorism, and is at the core of InfraGard's mission.
