How the FBI Works with Businesses
The Office of Private Sector (OPS) oversees the Bureau's vital engagement and information-sharing efforts with businesses, and industry. Part of the Intelligence Branch, OPS works to enhance the FBI's understanding of the private sector's risks and needs; increases collaboration and information-sharing between the Bureau and the private sector; and mitigates threats through longstanding, mutually beneficial partnerships.
