The Protected Critical Infrastructure Information (PCII) Program is an information protection program that enhances information sharing between the private sector and the government. The Department of Homeland Security and other federal, state and local analysts use PCII to:

  • Analyze and secure critical infrastructure and protected systems,
  • Identify vulnerabilities and develop risk assessments, and
  • Enhance recovery preparedness measures.

PCII cannot be used for regulatory purposes and can only be accessed in accordance with strict safeguarding and handling requirements. Submissions that do not meet the requirements are destroyed or returned to the submitter.
