Infragard North Dakota
Welcome and thank you for your interest in InfraGard, a non-profit organization which is vitally important to our national security. I’m privileged to represent InfraGard of North Dakota as its President with the commitment to improve security and community resiliency.
In 1996 the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) created InfraGard to protect and safeguard the 16 critical infrastructures as outlined by Presidential Directive 21: Critical Infrastructure Security & Resilience infrastructure. Our mandate of securing against potentially crippling attacks on our critical infrastructures and key resources, commonly referred to as CIKR, is wide-ranging and includes protecting interconnected physical or virtual systems and assets that are so vital that their incapacitation would have a debilitating effect on everything we hold dear. Think businesses, schools, highways, airports, hospitals, banks, police and fire services, power companies, drinking water systems, postal services, religious facilities, hotels, theme parks, shopping malls, restaurants and much, much more.
Increasingly a concern for every citizen, this critical alliance includes constituents from not only local, state, and national law enforcement, government, and the military, but also from public and private sectors. In the 20+ years since it was formed, the initiative has grown to include the InfraGard National Members Alliance (INMA) with 77 chapters and more than 75,000 members across the U.S.
To all our members in North Dakota and around the nation - Thank you for doing your part in safeguarding our freedoms and way of life. If you are not a member, consider joining us and perhaps becoming a member of Patriots Circle - harnessing our collective contributions and commitment to safeguarding national interests. Your tax-deductible gift will serve as a force multiplier in this worthwhile endeavor and will entitle you to exclusive member benefits.

InfraGard North Dakota
An FBI-affiliated 501(c)3 Organization
The North Dakota InfraGard mission is to lead the state effort to protect critical infrastructure and reduce risk by connecting the public and private infrastructure community with local, state, and Federal resources.
The vision of North Dakota InfraGard is to facilitate a secure and resilient infrastructure across the state of North Dakota through collaboration, information sharing, training, and relationship building across all infrastructure sectors.
The goal of InfraGard is to promote ongoing dialogue and timely communication between members and the FBI. InfraGard members gain access to information that enables them to protect their assets and in turn give information to government that facilitates its responsibilities to prevent and address terrorism and other crimes.
The relationship supports information sharing at national and local levels and its objectives are as follows:
- Increase the level of information and reporting between InfraGard members and the FBI on matters related to counterterrorism, cybercrime and other major crime programs.
- Increase interaction and information sharing among InfraGard members and the FBI regarding threats to the critical infrastructures, vulnerabilities, and interdependencies.
- Provide members value-added threat advisories, alerts, and warnings.
- Promote effective liaison with local, state and federal agencies, to include the Department of Homeland Security.
- Provide members a forum for education and training on counterterrorism, counterintelligence cyber crime and other matters relevant to informed reporting of potential crimes and attacks on the nation and U.S. interests.
