The mission of InfraGard has always been to protect America’s critical infrastructure. Over the years since its founding, the threats facing both tangible and intangible critical infrastructure have multiplied along with the methodologies used to breach the multiple defenses that have been developed. When it comes to cyber threats, the predominant perception of just whom and what we were confronting originally focused upon disgruntled employees and rogue hackers either working alone or in groups, endeavoring to steal, extort or simply create mayhem in cyberspace. After the attacks of 9/11, our vision expanded to include terrorist groups and stateless nations.
