This document identifies the capabilities necessary for state and major urban area fusion centers (fusion centers) to establish a critical infrastructure and key resources (CIKR) protection analytic capability that supports infrastructure security activities at the state and local levels. This document is an appendix to the U.S. Department of Justice’s Global Justice Information Sharing Initiative’s (Global) Baseline Capabilities for State and Major Urban Area Fusion Centers (Baseline Capabilities document), which defined the capabilities and standards necessary for a fusion center to be considered capable of performing basic functions (e.g., the gathering, processing, analyzing, and disseminating of terrorism, homeland security, and law enforcement information).
