The Infrastructure Security Partnership (TISP) Council facilitates public and private sector collaboration that advances the practice and policies of regional and infrastructure security and resilience. Our vision is secure and resilient infrastructure that supports the nation’s economy and well-being of its people.
TISP gathers agencies, companies, associations and individuals sharing a common interest in increasing the capacity of our infrastructure to absorb or mitigate the impact of hazard events while maintaining and restoring critical services. As an SAME council with a commitment to advancing the practice and policies of regional and infrastructure resilience, TISP provides three primary functions:
By fostering an environment of cooperation before a disaster hits and building essential, strategic partnerships with federal, state and local governments, large and small companies, associations, academic institutions and individuals, our nation can work together in developing resilient regions and infrastructure. This type of infrastructure is necessary to ensure a strong national economy and the well-being of our citizens and visitors.
