History of InfraGard

The InfraGard program traces its formation back to 1996 when the FBI’s Cleveland Field Office engaged experts from private industry to provide expertise for a cybersecurity investigation. The collaboration was so successful that the program quickly expanded to other Field Offices, leading the FBI to assign national program responsibility for InfraGard to FBI Headquarters in Washington DC and local program responsibility to the FBI’s 56 field offices.

South Carolina InfraGard Members Alliance is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization that retains its affiliation and partnership with the FBI.
