DSAC Member Portal
DSAC's strategic collaboration with the private sector enhances communication and promotes effective exchange of information in order to prevent, detect, and investigate criminal acts, particularly those affecting interstate commerce, while advancing the ability of the U.S. private sector to protect its employees, assets, infrastructure, and proprietary information. The DSAC Member Portal supports this mission by providing timely, actionable, and relevant information to our members.
Since 2008, the Department of Homeland Security has partnered with the Domestic Security Alliance Council. Together, FBI and DHS continue to engage in meaningful dialogue with our private sector partners to protect the people of the United States, and its interests.
