CISA to Host Virtual Industry Day Focused on Emergency Communications Division

CISA is at the heart of mobilizing a collective defense as we lead the Nation’s efforts to understand and manage risk to our critical infrastructure.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) will host regular Virtual Industry Day events in fiscal year (FY) 2022. These events will allow CISA and industry to have meaningful discussions about cybersecurity capabilities, challenges, and technologies as well as future business opportunities. The fifth FY22 Virtual Industry Day is scheduled for the Emergency Communications Division (ECD) on May 25, 2022 from 1:00PM to 3:15PM EST.

CISA is the Nation’s risk advisor, working with partners to defend against today’s threats and collaborating to build more secure and resilient infrastructure for the future.  The threats we face—digital and physical, man-made, technological, and natural—are more complex, and the threat actors more diverse, than at any point in our history. CISA is at the heart of mobilizing a collective defense as we lead the Nation’s efforts to understand and manage risk to our critical infrastructure. Our partners in this mission span the public and private sectors. Programs and services, we provide are driven by our comprehensive understanding of the risk environment and the corresponding needs identified by our stakeholders. We seek to help organizations better manage risk and increase resilience using all available resources, whether provided by the Federal Government, commercial vendors, or their own capabilities.

  • Cybersecurity Division (CSD)
  • Emergency Communications Division (ECD)
  • Infrastructure Security Division (ISD)
  • Integrated Operations Division (IOD)
  • National Risk Management Center (NRMC)

  • Provide up-to-date and accurate information about the CISA mission and requirements.
