Executive leaders and security experts from Critical Infrastructure Sectors meet regularly in national forums to exchange threat information, coordinate risk reduction efforts, and address the Nation’s security challenges. The National Infrastructure Protection Plan describes how government and private sector participants in the critical infrastructure community work together.
Advisory Councils and Committees
Executive leaders from the public and private sectors offer their expertise on policies and strategies for protecting the Nation’s critical infrastructure.
Critical Infrastructure Sector Partnerships
Industry and government councils serve the Nation's 16 critical sector. CISA serves as a risk advisor and plays an overarching coordination role across all the sectors.
Cross-Sector and Coordinating Councils
Industry and government leaders collaborate in national councils to address cybersecurity and physical security threats to critical infrastructure. Industry involvement is especially important since most critical infrastructure is owned and operated by the private sector.
