GEOINT 2022 Symposium Address

I want to extend a special thank you to Vice Admiral Sharp. I think this is your last GEOINT Symposium as NGA Director, and the National Counterterrorism Center and NGA have enjoyed a really strong partnership over the years, ever since our founding nearly 18 years ago, and you’ve always been a great champion of the CT community. So thank you for all that you do, we appreciate it. Thank you also to the GEOINT community for inviting me to this great event. I’ve had some time to wander the booths and see what is out there and it’s mind blowing, even as somebody that hasn’t been a government employee my entire life, for a short stint, it’s really remarkable to see where the technology is going and how much value it’s going to add to us as policymakers, as intelligence professionals – it’s incredible.

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) today released a mobile app, aCTknowledge, that shares unclassified counterterrorism reports, analysis, training resources, and alerts. The app is a first-of-its-kind platform that provides real-time unclassified intelligence on potential terrorist activities that may impact our country.

 

The 2021 U.S. Violent Extremist Mobilization Indicators booklet provides a catalog of observable behaviors that could signal whether individuals or groups are pursuing ideologically-motivated violent extremist activities. This update to the 2019 publication was jointly produced by the National Counterterrorism Center, Federal Bureau of Investigation, and Department of Homeland Security.

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.
