New York Metro InfraGard Members Alliance
Please take some time to remember the ultimate sacrifice of our armed forces that have given us the freedom to respectfully disagree on different beliefs but to demonstrate a collective unity called America. We may never all align with the politics of the day, but we can all agree that a soldier whose life was cut short in te act of protecting our rights, is a life worth remembering.
2017-May-19: Formation of the NY Metro InfraGard Incident Management SIG
The May 18th vehicular incident in Times Square reminds us that information sharing and community response are responsibilities core to InfraGard's mission and values.
Effective immediately, the NY Metro chapter has created an "Incident Management SIG" for our members.
The mission of the NY Metro Incident Management SIG is to support InfraGard's mission to protect critical infrastructure and preserve life in the event of an incident using well-defined procedure to provide resources to our communities. This shall be encompassed with three primary responsibilities:
Note: You *MUST* be an InfraGard member in good standing or an invited resource. All members and particpants may be subject to additional vetting.
- Create and maintain a series of processes and/or procedures -- akin to an SOG/SOP -- to execute with the bureau, local law enforcement, emergency services and our membership in the event of any serious incident, whether man-made or natural, whether malicious or accidental, whether it affects everyone or just a few in a significant manner. Such SOGs/SOPS should include criteria for triggering the procedure, guidelines and stages of escalation as well as criteria for returning to normalcy.
- Create and maintain a resource catalog - akin to an ITIL service catalog - of contacts (bureau, local law enforcement, emergency services and our membership) documenting both skills and services that can be provided in the event of an incident.
- Regularly communicate with the bureau, local law enforcement, emergency services and our membership either through conference calls or seminars to disseminate and remind our membership of the SIGs capabilities to support InfraGard's mission to protect critical infrastructure and preserve life in the event of an incident.

Protect Our Infrastructure
Individuals protect our country! One person can make a difference.
Since our nation is comprised of systems (people, businesses, buildings, highways, farms, communications, etc.), it is important to sustain and continually improve system operations.
One way to ensure these systems continue to benefit the people, is to protect them from natural disaster, human error or terror; and set up recovery actions in the event misfortune can not be avoided.
The protection of our nation is a collaborative effort in which all citizens hold some level responsibility. Your contribution(s) are absolutely invaluable.
