Become an InfraGard Sponsor

About our sponsorship opportunities

InfraGard is a Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) program that began in 1996, and has since grown to a national organization of 86 Member Alliances and over 50,000 members. InfraGard supports the FBI’s investigative mission, especially as it pertains to counterterrorism and cyber security, as well as the DHS Critical Infrastructure Protection program.

As an information sharing and networking initiative, InfraGard is serving the interests and combining 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 members 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 United States. InfraGard “Chapters” are geographically linked with FBI Field Office territories and are a partnership between private sector-led InfraGard Members Alliances and the FBI.

The InfraGard Tampa Bay Chapter covers Tampa, Clearwater, St. Petersburg and the surrounding countries and all 16 of the currently-defined DHS critical infrastructure sectors as well as four locally-designated sectors. Our members are individuals who have been vetted by the FBI for Official Use Only (FOUO) and Law Enforcement Sensitive (LES) information. Our Chapter is continually growing and has over 500 members governed by our Board of Directors.

The goal of InfraGard is to promote ongoing dialogue and timely communication between its members, the FBI and other federal, state and local law enforcement agencies. This goal is supported by the following objectives:

  • To increase the quantity and quality of information sharing and reporting from InfraGard members to the FBI and its law enforcement partners
  • To provide members value-added threat briefings, alerts, and analytical intelligence products regarding all hazards to the 16 DHS-recognized critical infrastructure sectors
  • To promote effective liaison with local, state and federal agencies, to include the Department of Homeland Security
  • To provide members a forum for education and training on counter-terrorism, counter-intelligence, cyber-security and other matters relevant to preventing potential crimes and attacks on the nation’s critical infrastructure and key resources (CI/KR)

 

Your financial support will enable us to achieve these important objectives. We hope that you will consider sponsoring our InfraGard Members Alliance at one of the levels described on the attached summary sheet. Our guiding philosophy in acquiring financial support is to form a long-term relationship of mutual benefit to both InfraGard and its sponsors.
