The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has set up regional offices across the country to improve the delivery of the department’s services to critical infrastructure owners and operators and state, local, tribal, and territorial partners, and to enhance support to existing CISA field staff by relocating administrative, logistical, and regional operations capabilities from CISA headquarters (HQ) to 10 regional offices.
