Comments on Principles and Framework: Artificial Intelligence Ethics For The Intelligence Community -- On July 23, the Intelligence Community (IC) release the Principles of Artificial Intelligence (AI) Ethics for the Intelligence Community and the related Artificial Intelligence Ethics Framework for the Intelligence Community.  The Principles and Framework guide the IC's ethical development and use of AI.  The Intelligence Community plans to update the Framework as it continues to improve its processes, but also in response to the developments in the private sector and based on input from the public.  Comments on the Principles and Framework may be sent to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Intelligence, Science and Technology Partnership (In-STeP) -- Whether it’s business process innovation or emerging technologies, if it affects the IC and its mission, we want to know about it. Managed by ODNI’s Transformation and Innovation (TI) Office, the Intelligence, Science, and Technology Partnership (In-STeP) serves a dual purpose: to expose the IC to innovation beyond its doors, and to convey the IC’s needs to those breaking new ground. If you’d like to share your capabilities with the IC, please visit the In-STeP website.


Shaping Future Cyber Threat Analyses and Production – The National Intelligence Cyber Executive welcomes private sector feedback on cyber threat intelligence reports and briefings, particularly with regard to their accessibility, actionability, and timeliness. Regular feedback helps drive content improvement processes and provides ODNI with an improved understanding of victims and targets. Feedback is welcome on the following: Cyber Threat Framework (CTF) and the 2018 Key Challenges in CTI. Feedback can be provided to the ODNI via email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Acquisition, Procurement & Facilities (AP&F) – AP&F works closely with the private sector through multiple venues including:

    • IC Enterprise Agreements:  Industry Partners interested in establishing an IC-wide Enterprise Agreement to provide software, services, or appliances may contact Robert Miller at This email address is being protected from spambots.

    • IC Acquisition Resource Center (IC ARC): The following two web sites are available for those exploring opportunities to do business with the IC. Companies and their employees must register for access, and companies will be added to a contractor registry. More detailed information is available at each site. Each site provides additional guidance for efforts that require contractors with TS SCI clearances. These sites are used by more than just NRO and NSA to advertise business opportunities.

Election Security Information Needs – The IC supports a whole-of-government approach to prevent foreign adversaries from using U.S. elections to undermine confidence in our democracy, sow divisions in our society and promote their agendas. If you are involved in elections, please report any potential indications that foreign actors may be interfering in U.S. elections to the FBI or DHS through our Election Security Page. An overview of foreign threats to U.S. elections, along with a list of potential indicators of foreign adversary activities, can be found at: DNI NCSC Elections Brochure


 

NCSC "Safeguarding Our Future" Bulletins – NCSC recently launched a new “Safeguarding Our Future” campaign in which it will be issuing a series of one-page, unclassified bulletins -- each on a specific foreign intelligence threat -- to help raise awareness among private industry, academia, and state & local governments. Each is designed to provide a brief overview of a specific threat, as well as the impacts and mitigation steps. You can also email NCSC at This email address is being protected from spambots.

  • NCSC and FBI recently released a new movie --"The Nevernight Connection" -- to raise awareness of how foreign intelligence services and other hostile actors increasingly use fake profiles and other forms of deception on social media to target Americans for recruitment and information gathering. Posing as headhunters or consultants on professional networking sites, hostile foreign actors are aggressively targeting individuals in government, business and academic communities to obtain valuable and sensitive information.
