CISA works with partners to defend against today’s threats and collaborates 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.
