NATIONAL COUNTERINTELLIGENCE AND SECURITY CENTER
CELEBRATES FIRST ANNIVERSARY
Today—with a website relaunch and a redesigned seal—the ODNI’s National Counterintelligence and Security Center marked its one-year anniversary since officially becoming an ODNI center. The organizational structure of the NCSC aligns with similar centers within the ODNI, such as the National Counterproliferation Center and the National Counterterrorism Center.
The new NCSC website provides its visitors with more easily accessible information, and the new seal incorporates input from NCSC employees, who voted on the design.
The establishment of the NCSC, which National Counterintelligence Executive William “Bill” Evanina leads as director, was the next step in the effective integration of counterintelligence and security missions within a single organizational structure.
“The scale and scope of security challenges we face have only increased in the year since the center was established and we must educate our partners and the public about these diverse threats,” Evanina said. “The website relaunch and seal redesign will bolster our efforts to raise awareness of NCSC’s vital work and mission.”
The NCSC carries out the counterintelligence responsibilities of the National Counterintelligence Executive and its predecessor, the Office of the National Counterintelligence Executive, and fulfills their responsibilities as outlined in the Counterintelligence Enhancement Act of 2002.
The NCSC provides effective leadership and support to the counterintelligence and security activities of the U.S. Intelligence Community, the U.S. Government, and private sector entities who are at risk of intelligence collection or attack by foreign adversaries.
