Welcome to the gateway for submitting your critical infrastructure information to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Protected Critical Infrastructure Information (PCII) Program.

The PCII Program, established in response to the Critical Infrastructure Information Act of 2002 (CII Act), is designed to encourage private industry to voluntarily share its sensitive security-related business information with the Federal government.

We welcome submissions from:

  • Private Owners/operators of facilities
  • State and local government officials
  • Local law enforcement officials
  • Trade associations

Information validated as PCII by the PCII Program will be protected from public disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and similar State and local disclosure laws, and use in civil litigation. The protections offered through the PCII Program facilitate information-sharing between the government and the private sector.

The following aids have been developed to assist you in the electronic submission process:

The PCII Program will evaluate the information submitted to determine if it qualifies for protection under the CII Act. If additional clarification is needed, the Program may contact the submitter before making a final determination.

Information that does not qualify for PCII protection will, at the preference of the submitter, be returned to the submitter or destroyed in accordance with the Federal Records Act and Department of Homeland Security Regulations. The information received, in accordance with applicable procedures, will be treated as PCII while under review.

To submit CII quickly and easily, through a secure server, select the "Submit CII" button below to begin the process. As a reminder, use of this server is for the submission of critical infrastructure information only.
