InfraGard membership is granted on an individual basis. Each individual InfraGard member must be a US Citizen by birth as defined by 8 USC 1401-1409, or US Citizen by Naturalization as defined by 8 USC 1421-1459. They must submit a signed, completed membership application. In doing so, they are agreeing to undergo a limited background check, including a check of their criminal record. In signing the membership application, prospective members are also agreeing to protect the information they receive via InfraGard.
This protection is defined as treating the information as “Business Confidential” and not disclosing the information beyond its intended scope. Prospective members should carefully review the membership application before signing and submitting it to the FBI.
