Today’s FBI is an intelligence-driven and threat-focused national security organization with both intelligence and law enforcement responsibilities that is staffed by a dedicated cadre of more than 30,000 agents, analysts and other professionals who work around the clock and across the globe to protect the United States from terrorism, espionage, cyber attacks and major criminal threats, and to provide its many partners with services, support, training and leadership.
The SD-LECC's mission is to protect the people and infrastructure of San Diego and Imperial Counties from criminal activity, terrorism, and potential hazards by effective information sharing and timely/relevant analysis and dissemination of intelligence to local state, tribal and federal partners. The SD-LECC is an integral component of The National Fusion Center Enterprise, and is one of 79 DHS-designated centers in the United States. Fusion centers serve as focal points within the state and local environment for the receipt, analysis, gathering, and sharing of threat-related information between the federal government and state, local, tribal, territorial (SLTT) and private sector partners.

California State University San Marcos Extended Learning is a proud partner of InfraGard and a strong supporter of providing educational programing to support business and organization security and readiness.

Our programs attempt to reduce these numbers with vibrant educational programs. We offer a Professional Science Master’s degree in Cybersecurity (www.csusm.edu/el/cybersecurity) and a Professional Certificate in Business Emergency Preparedness Planning (http://www.csusm.edu/el/certificateprograms/bpdev/bepp/index.html).
The mission of the Securing Our eCity Foundation (SOeC) is to enable every San Diegan to live, work and play safely in the cyber world. We assist businesses, families, our aging population and youths to be better prepared for a safer cyber experience in rapidly changing, technology-driven environments. In late 2011, ESET Foundation, Inc. (dba) Securing Our eCity Foundation was formed based upon an initiative started in mid-2008 by ESET North America, an Internet security company with North American headquarters in San Diego, CA. The Foundation is now a viable non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization still guided by the vision, mission and principles established at the onset of the initiative. Supported through generous donations from organizations like ESET North America and San Diego Gas & Electric, SOeC continues to help facilitate a safer cyber experience for digital citizens in the greater San Diego area.
