The Cyber Resilience Institute (CRI) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization engaged in resilience activities and programming designed to build cyber capacity in communities, and to achieve outcomes in protecting critical infrastructure/key resources throughout the United States. Our mission is to help communities build operational and sustainable Private-Public Partnerships (PPPs) and cybersecurity information sharing environments centered on enabling market forces.
CRI is a national organization that also forms international partnerships. We advance initiatives and partner in the advancement of community and regional initiatives that are innovative and demonstrate capacity-building outcomes associated with Information Sharing and Analysis Organizations (ISAOs) and Information Sharing and Analysis Centers (ISACs), particularly concerning the knowledge, workforce, trade-craft and build-out of cyber threat intelligence sharing capabilities.
CRI is the primary sponsor of the Sports-ISAO program and the event-based pop-up security operations centers (SOC) that have been stood-up in support of major global sporting events. An outgrowth of CRI’s efforts with the Sports-ISAO has been the creation of the c-Watch program which provides Apprenticeship opportunities within the SOCs for aspiring cyber threat hunters.
