The Intelligence Community has openly celebrated Pride Month for over a decade, but we haven’t always been the best Ally for the LGBTQ+ community. 

 

The Space Force activated the National Space Intelligence Center which will be led by its newest unit Space Delta 18, during a ceremony on June 24 at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio. 

 

Every year, the RSA Conference (RSAC) brings together over 40,000 people to collaborate on emerging trends and strategies to best address current and future cyber threats.

 

At this year’s conference in San Francisco on June 6, Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines offered insights into the Intelligence Community’s evolving role in cybersecurity.

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines released the following statement on the confirmation of Kenneth L. Wainstein as Under Secretary of Homeland Security for Intelligence and Analysis:

 

“On behalf of the Intelligence Community (IC), I warmly welcome Kenneth L. Wainstein to the IC and congratulate him on his Senate confirmation to lead the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Intelligence and Analysis (I&A). I cannot think of a better person to take on this leadership role.

 

“Ken is a former Homeland Security Advisor and experienced public servant, and I look forward to working with him as he fulfills I&A’s critically important mission, which includes the sharing of timely and actionable intelligence with State, Local, Tribal and Territorial, and private sector partners in support of our national security.”

 

At the Defense Intelligence Agency’s Pride Month kick-off event, Christy Abizaid, Director of the National Counterterrorism Center and former DIA officer, delivered a keynote speech describing her experiences in government and the private sector - and reinforced the importance of bringing your whole self to work. Abizaid spoke to IC workforce members from the DIA Tighe Auditorium, where 20 years ago, almost to the day, she began her civil servant career as a DIA analyst.
