The National Intelligence Council (NIC) today released the seventh edition of its quadrennial Global Trends report. Global Trends 2040: A More Contested World is an unclassified assessment of the forces and dynamics that the NIC anticipates are likely to shape the national security environment over the next 20 years.

The Director of National Intelligence submits this summary consistent with direction in Section 506I of the National Security Act of 1947 (50 U.S.C. § 3105) which provides:

NCSC and Partners Launch “National Supply Chain Integrity Month” in April: A Call-to-Action Campaign to Raise Awareness of Supply Chain Threats and Mitigation on April 1, 2021

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.
