GeneralThese comments were submitted by The InfraGard National Capital Region Members Alliance (INCRMA), Regulatory & Policy Working Group, whose members hail from both government and industry. The InfraGard National Capital Region Members Alliance (INCRMA) is an alliance with the FBI's Washington Field Office and individuals committed to protecting the nation's critical infrastructure. Our chapter has the same footprint as the FBI field office with which we are aligned - Washington, DC and northern Virginia. Our mission is to improve and extend information sharing between critical infrastructure stakeholders, in both the private and public sectors, with the government, particularly the FBI, to protect those infrastructure assets from physical and/or cyber attack. As a result of this exchange, timely information and intelligence is delivered, investigations are initiated and/or enhanced, vital economic and national security assets are protected, and lasting relationships are formed between law enforcement and infrastructure owners/operators.Rejected
