The Protected Critical Infrastructure Information Program (PCII Program) was established pursuant to the Critical Infrastructure Information Act of 2002 (CII Act). The program institutes a means for the voluntary sharing of private sector, State, and local CIKR information with the Federal Government while providing assurances that the information will be exempt from public disclosure and will be properly safeguarded.
The PCII Program, which operates under the authority of the CII Act and the implementing regulations, 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.
