Learn about EMA’s strong partnership with the team at the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency.


Protecting the Industry

The minerals industry provides the nation with minerals that are essential to supply chains that keep America running. From household products to vehicles to our national defense – the United States depends on the industry. The strategic importance of mining also leaves us vulnerable to bad actors, especially in realm of cybersecurity. EMA works with the Department of Homeland Security to keep member companies safe from attack.
