Region 5

Region 5

Through CISA's 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.  

Headquartered in Chicago, CISA Region 5 provides cybersecurity, physical infrastructure security, and chemical security services to 34 Tribal Nations and stakeholders in:

  • Illinois
  • Indiana
  • Michigan
  • Minnesota
  • Ohio
  • Wisconsin 

Led by Regional Director Alexander Joves, a team of security professionals located throughout the region manages mission execution through steady state and incident response support operations. In addition to supporting the Nation’s coronavirus (COVID-19) response, Region 5 carries out CISA’s five priorities:  

  • Improve supply chain security against cyber threats from malicious actors and the rollout of 5G technologies;  
  • Harden federal networks and the .gov domain; 
  • Reduce risk at soft targets;  
  • Enhance election security; and 
  • Protect critical infrastructure that includes industrial control systems and the processes that provide vital services in critical infrastructure.
