Overview

The Protected Critical Infrastructure Information Program (PCII Program)[1] was established pursuant to the Critical Infrastructure Information Act of 2002 (CII Act). The PCII Program is unique because it provides a method for critical infrastructure owners to submit information voluntarily to the Federal government to which the government would not otherwise have access. while providing assurances that the information will be exempt from public disclosure and will be properly safeguarded.

Once information is submitted and the PCII Program has validated it as PCII, Federal, State, and local government entities can use the information to protect the U.S.'s critical infrastructure.

The PCII Program, which operates under the authority of the CII Act and the implementing regulations,[1] defines both the requirements for submitting CII and those that governmental entities must meet for accessing and safeguarding PCII. DHS remains committed to making PCII an effective tool for robust information sharing between critical infrastructure owners and operators and the government.
