are at a new plateau as an organization and you, our InfraGard Los Angeles
(IGLA) Members, are the reason.
the past year, InfraGard LA has stayed the course during a reorganization of
InfraGard National Members Alliance (INMA) and remains the premiere Chapter of
InfraGard. Thanks go to the InfraGard LA's Board of Director's, IGLA
Staff and our FBI Coordinator and Staff who were a strong influence during the
FBI's introduction of the new National Infrastructure Protection Unit (NIPU) at
FBI Headquarters in Washington D.C. Next and foremost is the InfraGard LA
Members who responded to our call and re-registered with InfraGard National as
part of the FBI Mandate. With nearly 3,000 members, IGLA remains the
largest Chapter of INMA because of you.
is also exciting news to share from the IGLA program perspectives. IGLA
is home to the new FBI Information Sharing Initiative that was unveiled in
April 2014. The new initiative, when final adjustments are complete, will
be the FBI flag ship of interagency information sharing. This will
positively affect all private sector members with more real-time and less
layered information. The USC - Cyber Program continues to evolve to meet
the changing dynamics of our membership and continues to draw record attendees
to the Certificate program. Our KIPP - Infrastructure Liaison Officer Program
continues to adapt to our specific Sector needs and is reaching the limits of
the FBI area of responsibility. The ILO is also expanding to other regions
where KIPP is partnering with other Fusion Centers to create ILO programs
specific to their needs.
Los Angeles has prudently partnered the Domestic Security Alliance Committee
(DSAC) with the InfraGard LA Chapter. This allows for key personnel in
high profile organizations to have access to critical information at the same
time as their senior executives. This will provide continuity of
operations, security awareness and planning at the heart of key resources and
critical infrastructure businesses.
InfraGard LA is working closely with the reorganized InfraGard National Members
Alliance in order to support their mission and provide opportunities to smaller
chapters while promoting a one mission, one message ideology with National.
Welcome New Members and THANK YOU to our steadfast membership who keeps
InfraGard LA the premiere Alliance in the nation!
Rieger, President and CEO
