Our Mission

DEFENDING NEW JERSEY'S DIGITAL DENSITY

The New Jersey Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Cell (NJCCIC) is the State's one-stop shop for cybersecurity information sharing, threat analysis, and incident reporting.  A component organization within the New Jersey Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness (NJOHSP), the NJCCIC works to make the State of NJ more resilient to cyber attacks, to promote statewide awareness of local cyber threats and widespread adoption of best practices. Located at the Regional Operations Intelligence Center (ROIC), and acting in a cyber fusion center capacity, the NJCCIC is comprised of members from NJOHSP, the New Jersey Office of Information Technology (NJOIT), and the New Jersey State Police (NJSP).

What We Do

Information Sharing

Cybersecurity is a collective responsibility and New Jersey's digital density demands close and constant collaboration across sectors and industries. The goal is to promote shared and real-time awareness of cyber threat for New Jersey's citizens, local governments, businesses, and critical infrastructure owners and operators.  The NJCCIC bridges the information divide between local, state, federal, public, and private sector institutions to reduce New Jersey's cyber risk and respond to emergent incidents.

Cyber Threat Analysis

The NJCCIC fuses technical and non-technical sources to analyze New Jersey's local cyber threat landscape and reduce the State's virtual vulnerabilities. In addition to cyber tips, alerts, and mitigation techniques, the NJCCIC produces sector-specific threat assessments. Our analysis correlates both historical and current data and reflects our collaborative relationship with local, state, federal, and industry partners.

Incident Reporting

We encourage our members and all New Jersey citizens and businesses to voluntarily report cyber incidents to the NJCCIC's Cyber Liaison Officers. Doing so will aid incident response and help us get ahead of the attacker's next move.
