ICISI’s vision is to Democratize cybersecurity® for critical infrastructure. Our mission is to act as a “bridge builder” to inspire and revolutionize imaginative solutions that protect the world’s most critical assets from cyber threats.
The International Critical Infrastructure Institute (ICISI) is a 501(c)(6) research and workforce development organization that specializes in cybersecurity and the protection of critical infrastructure from cyber-based threats. By providing access to state of the art labs, ICISI grants membership to individuals and corporations providing access to systems and technologies that would otherwise be only accessible by the larger laboratories. “ICISI Democratizes Cyber-Physical”® for all levels of expertise. We provide the environment, training, and staff to push boundaries and innovate new security technologies. Through strategic partnerships with industry, universities, and governments ICISI seeks to improve cyber-physical protections across critical infrastructure. ICISI works with members to promote performance-based standards, revolutionize security technologies, and accelerate broad adoption of informed, proven best practices.
