It is through collaboration with these partners that CISA can identify the most significant risks to the nation and coordinate risk reduction activities to ensure critical infrastructure is secure and resilient both now and into the future. NRMC is dedicated to anticipating and evaluating emerging risks and using those insights to develop timely and actionable risk management advice to help mitigate national-level risks to critical infrastructure. The Strategic Foresight Subdivision leads our efforts to inform NRMC and CISA operational planning and to identify priority risk management topics to reduce the risk of strategic surprise.
