Dr. Alan MacDougall, director of the National Counterproliferation Center, spoke with a group of senior U.S. Army officers who specialize in nuclear and counter-WMD efforts during a U.S. Army Nuclear and Countering WMD Agency professional development seminar on Feb. 2.

 

Today, the ODNI publicly released the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) Implementation Procedures for the ODNI Intelligence Activities Procedures Approved by the Attorney General Pursuant to Executive Order 12333 (NCTC Implementation Procedures) to provide appropriate transparency to the American people concerning NCTC’s counterterrorism mission and its protection of privacy and civil liberties. In January 2021, ODNI issued the first Attorney General-approved procedures specifically tailored to all of ODNI and governing all of ODNI’s intelligence activities. Those procedures required ODNI’s NCTC to develop supplementary procedures to address NCTC’s additional statutory collection authority. The NCTC Implementation Procedures fulfill that requirement and also provide more specific guidance to NCTC personnel regarding the application of certain aspects of the ODNI procedures to NCTC intelligence activities.

 

The National Counterintelligence and Security Center (NCSC) today issued “Insider Threat Mitigation for U.S. Critical Infrastructure Entities: Guidelines from an Intelligence Perspective.”

“On behalf of the Intelligence Community, I offer my heartfelt congratulations to Bill Burns on his confirmation as director of the CIA. Bill is an extraordinary public servant, having dedicated the majority of his life to government service representing our country with distinction as a diplomat and a leader around the world. The respect he engenders in and outside government is a consequence not only of his distinguished career and intelligence but also his generosity and integrity. I am deeply grateful to call Bill a friend and have him as a colleague. I look forward to working with him to advance the Intelligence Community’s mission in service to our nation.”
