About InfraGard and the InfraGard National
The InfraGard Program began in 1996 as a collaborative effort between private sector cyber professionals and the FBI field office in Cleveland Ohio. The FBI later expanded the program to each of the FBI’s 56 field offices and all 16 critical infrastructure sectors.
In 2003 the private sector members of InfraGard formed the “InfraGard National Members Alliance” (INMA), now shortened to “InfraGard National.” InfraGard National is a non-profit Delaware LLC with 501(c)3 status. The INMA LLC is comprised of 79 separate 501(c)3 InfraGard Member Alliances (IMAs) representing over 58,000 FBI-vetted, public and private sector partners.
