Region 1

Region 1

CISA focuses on protecting today and securing tomorrow. Through our efforts to understand and advise on cyber and physical risks to the Nation’s critical infrastructure, we help partners strengthen their own capabilities. We connect our stakeholders in industry and government to each other and to resources, analyses, and tools to help them build their own cyber, physical and communications security, and, in turn, strengthen national resilience.      

CISA Region 1, headquartered in Boston, provides cybersecurity and infrastructure security services to the six New England states of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont, as well as 10 Tribal Nations.   

Regional Director Matthew McCann leads a team of security professionals located throughout New England who enable the region to better understand and manage cyber and physical risk to our critical infrastructure.  

Region 1 personnel work with critical infrastructure partners and communities at the regional, state, county, tribal, and local levels to:   

  • Support preparation, response, and recovery efforts for hazards impacting critical infrastructure;   
  • Safeguard soft targets and crowded places;   
  • Conduct and integrate infrastructure assessments and analysis, including dependencies and cascading effects, on critical infrastructure to influence decision-making at all phases of emergency management;   
  • Facilitate information sharing between public and private sector critical infrastructure partners;   
  • Enhance election infrastructure security and other critical infrastructure cyber systems; and,   
  • Improve situational awareness of cybersecurity risks and incidents.
