The National Counterintelligence and Security Center (NCSC) debuts Monday as the U.S. intelligence community seeks to stay ahead of the aggressive evolution of complicated espionage, cyber and security threats.

The NCSC will now become the parent organization of the Office of the National Counterintelligence Executive (ONCIX), which was created by the Counterintelligence Enhancement Act of 2002 to carry out counterintelligence and security responsibilities for the Director of National Intelligence.
