The National Intelligence Community is an agile, integrated and data-driven intelligence enterprise that meets the challenges presented by Australia’s evolving strategic and security environment.
Agencies collaborate on our missions, to develop joint capabilities and shared services, with a particular focus on common technology, workforce and professional development capabilities. Agencies also provide integrated advice to the Government on intelligence priorities, requirements, performance and resourcing.
The National Intelligence Community was officially formed following the Australian Government's adoption of the 2017 Independent Intelligence Review's recommendations. The Review noted the need for greater integration given the increasing complexity of Australia's geo-strategic environment, the rapid pace of technological change and broadening scope of security and intelligence challenges.
