Citation: Critical Infrastructure Information Act of 2002, presented as subtitle B of title II of the Homeland Security Act (§§211-15), codified at 6 U.S.C. 131 et seq. ([1])

Overview

Enacted as part of the Homeland Security Act of 2002, the Critical Infrastructure Information Act of 2002 created a framework that enables members of the private sector and others to voluntarily submit sensitive information regarding the Nation’s CIKR to DHS with the assurance that the information, if it satisfies certain requirements, will be protected from public disclosure.

PCII Program

The PCII Program, created under the authority of the Act, is central to the information-sharing and protection strategy of the NIPP. By protecting sensitive information submitted through the program, the private sector is assured that the information will remain secure and only be used to further CIKR protection efforts.[1]
