The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency Act of 2018 (Pub. L. 115-278) created the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). CISA is responsible for protecting the Nation's critical infrastructure from physical and cyber threats. This mission requires effective coordination and collaboration from government and private sector organizations. As part of the collaboration efforts, CISA receives requests for CISA employees to give presentations and speeches at various events.

This digital collection of information is necessary to ensure an efficient and timely process to schedule outreach and engagement with CISA stakeholders. This information may be disclosed as generally permitted under 5 U.S.C. 522.

The Speaker Request Form will be the first point of contact between CISA and the public to initiate CISA speaking engagements. The form will be available on and any member of the public can submit a request for a CISA employee to speak at an event. The form will be used by CISA to track and manage external speaking engagements. The information will also be used to schedule and determine the most appropriate CISA speaker based on date, time, location, presentation format, and topic. The form collects information regarding the requested speaking engagement, e.g., the host organization, the speaking topic, agenda, and additional event details. The requested information helps CISA determine whether the speaker should attend the engagement and/or how CISA should best prepare for the event.

The information is used to determine if accepting the request will further CISA's mission. The CISA Speakers Bureau team will use the information to identify a speaker and route the Speakers Request Form to that person for consideration. Confirmed CISA speaking engagements are then sent to DHS Public Affairs for awareness.

The form will be available on as a fillable pdf and/or webform, and will be submitted to the CISA External Affairs Speakers Bureau. The data collected will be stored in an internal SharePoint site.
