National Critical Functions

The National Risk Management Center (NRMC) supports CISA’s Cyber and Infrastructure Security Mission by creating an environment where government and industry can collaborate within and across sectors to develop plans and solutions for reducing cyber and other systemic risks to national and economic security. NRMC turns analysis into action by developing risk management solutions.

CISA works in close coordination with other federal agencies, the private sector and other key stakeholders in the critical infrastructure community to Identify, Analyze, Prioritize, and Manage the most strategic risks to the Nation’s critical infrastructure.
