CyberRisk Alliance and InfraGard National Members Alliance Join Forces for Better Cybersecurity
CyberRisk Alliance entered into a strategic partnership with InfraGard National Members Alliance, “an FBI-affiliated nonprofit organization dedicated to strengthening national security, community resilience and the foundation of American life,” according to its About Us page. The partnership allows CyberRisk Alliance to leverage its business intelligence platforms to deliver cybersecurity resources and membership activities to InfraGard’s more than 78,000 members, which include local, state, and federal law enforcement entities; government agencies; and academic institutions. In addition, CyberRisk Alliance will provide “custom research capabilities to field a Critical Infrastructure Resilience benchmarking study that will include [a CyberRisk Alliance] custom report distributed to [InfraGard]’s members, followed by an ongoing digital newsletter.”
“Over 90% of the nation’s critical infrastructure is managed/maintained by the private sector, so [this] strategic partnership … comes at a pivotal moment as the threatscape continues to increase,” says John Whelan, CyberRisk Alliance’s president. “Our mission to serve the information needs of the cybersecurity community through innovative information solutions relies upon establishing key partnerships across the public and private sector, so we are really delighted to be working with [InfraGard] to develop information services that will benefit the community.”
