== Overview ==
The '''[http://www.dhs.gov/files/programs/editorial_0404.shtm Protected Critical Infrastructure Information Program''' ('''PCII Program''') 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 [[safeguard]]ed.
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]].
