How to Operate More Effectively in the New Threat Environment: Educating the Next Generation of Intelligence Professionals by The Intelligence and Security Academy

18-20 October 2016 - Arlington, VA

The Intelligence & Security Academy offers this 3-day program jointly with the FGH Academy of Competitive Intelligence (ACI). The program will be led by three respected educators in the intelligence field, both government and private sector: Mark M. Lowenthal, The Intelligence & Security Academy; Jan P. Herring, FGH Academy of Competitive Intelligence; and Tip Clifton, Eastport Analytics.
Both intelligence communities – government and private-sector – need to better understand the nature of their current and future competitive environments, and to begin to develop both the intelligence sources and analytical skills they will need to operate in the emerging threat environment. This course is designed to help intelligence practitioners prepare for the new and emerging intelligence environment that both government and private-sector intelligence organizations will be facing in the years to come.

Day 1: Mark Lowenthal "Issues for the Intelligence Professional" 8:30am-4:30pm Dr. Lowenthal will address Open Source Intelligence Today; Training an Intelligence Work Force; and Warning Intelligence: What, How.

Day 2: Jan Herring "The Future Competitive Environment Facing Both Public and Private-sector Intelligence Professionals"
8:30am-4:30pm Mr. Herring will address the 'Future Intelligence' Environment for Private-sector Intelligence Professionals; New Types of Intelligence Professionals that will be needed in "That Future"; New Analytical Techniques and Tools for The Future Intelligence Environment.

Day 3: Tip Clifton "Innovating in Analytics"
8:30am-12:30pm Successful organizations today increasingly leverage information to support decision-making across the enterprise. The shift from information and technology scarcity to over-abundance has radically tilted the playing field away from collection and towards analysis, opening up huge opportunities for business.
Organizations can (and now must) innovate rapidly in analytics; to do so requires organizational commitment, understanding the organizational impediments to analytics innovation, and a decision-centric approach for achieving change. This half day session will use case studies to illustrate principles of effective innovation in analytics.
Pricing: Early Bird Pricing prior to September 1, 2016 - $1,875.00/ After September 1, 2016 - $2,400.00 AFIO members receive a 10% discount!
Course registration is handled directly through ACI here.

New Intelligence Program Aims to Stop Supply Chain Hacks.  U.S. intelligence agencies are rolling out an exclusive cybersecurity information sharing initiative where American telecommunications, energy and financial services businesses will begin to receive classified threat intelligence reports about hackers who are targeting supply chain operations.

Led by the National Counterintelligence and Security Center, news of the information sharing plan follows a meeting between NCSC Director William Evanina and U.S. telecommunication industry leaders in Washington last month.

A complimentary video published Thursday by NCSC also highlights the importance of supply chain security to mitigate threats associated with the theft of intellectual property, trade secrets and research and development methods.

"The supply chain is the interconnected web of people, processes, technology, information and resources that deliver a product or service," the NCSC video describes.  [Read more:  Bing/FedScoop/11August2016]

More Info Needed to Analyze Change Over N.K. Intelligence Agency: Seoul.  South Korea said Tuesday that more information is needed to analyze whether control of North Korea's intelligence agency has changed following the latest overhaul of its cabinet organization.

The Ministry of State Security, Pyongyang's intelligence agency, was previously placed under the control of the powerful National Defense Commission (NDC) before the country's parliament replaced the NDC with a newly created state apparatus named the State Affairs Commission (SAC) in late June.

The NDC previously had three ministries - the Ministry of People's Armed Forces, the North's defense ministry, and the Ministry of People's Security, the North's police agency - under its wing.

But as North Korea's state media called the two ministries by different official names, speculation is growing that the official name of the ministry on state security might have been altered.  [Read more:  Yonhap/16August2016]
 
Groups Oppose EU Funding of Romanian Intelligence Agency's Facial Recognition Data Program.  European privacy groups have voiced opposition to a planned surveillance data project that would significantly expand the technology capabilities of Romania's domestic intelligence service.

The program, SII Analytics, would enable Romanian Intelligence Service (SRI) to identify its citizens through facial recognition technology and allow the agency to intercept online communications, according to a letter signed by the groups.

The letter was signed by four groups, ActiveWatch, Association for Human Rights in Romania (APADOR CH), Association for Technology and Internet (ApTI), and Legal Resources Centre. The groups said the surveillance system violates privacy and personal data protections contained in Articles 7 and 8 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union. The project received EU funding, the letter said.

The Romanian intelligence agency said SII Analytics "does not collect new data but analyzes [existing data] based on algorithms," according to a Google translation of an SII Analytics statement.  [Read more:  Davis/SCMagazine/9August2016]

Michal Koudelka Becomes New Head of Czech Counter-Intelligence Service.  Czech Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka inaugurated yesterday Michal Koudelka as new head of the BIS counter-intelligence to replace Jiri Lang who asked for release from the post after 13 years in early June, the Government Office has told CTK.

The government approved the change at the BIS head at the end of July.

Koudelka, born in 1965, graduated from the Czech Technical University in Prague (CVUT). He joined the secret service in 1992. He headed the BIS's counter-espionage department for ten years.

The defence committee of the Chamber of Deputies unanimously recommended him to the head of the BIS in mid-July.  [Read more:  PragueDailyMonitor/16August2016]

Pakistan: Intelligence Cooperation Deal With Afghanistan Can Help Counter Terrorism.  Pakistan is calling on Afghanistan to help create a formal intelligence-sharing deal so that the countries can better address allegations that their spy agencies are involved with anti-state violence on both sides of their shared border.

Pakistani prime minister's foreign policy advisor, Sartaj Aziz, renewed the call amid allegations the Afghan intelligence agency, National Directorate of Security (NDS) had links to Monday's deadly suicide hospital bombing in the southwestern city of Quetta.

The attack killed more than 70 people and wounded scores of others, with most of the victims belonging to the lawyer community.

A splinter faction of the Pakistani Taliban, known as Jamaat-ul-Ahrar, or JuA, claimed responsibility for the bloodshed. The United States last month designated it as a global terrorist organization.  [Read more:  Gul/VOA/12August2016]

How the U.S. Spies on Medical Nonprofits and Health Defenses Worldwide.  As part of an ongoing effort to "exploit medical intelligence," the National Security Agency teamed up with the military-focused Defense Intelligence Agency to extract "medical SIGINT" from the intercepted communications of nonprofit groups starting in the early 2000s, a top-secret document shows.

Medical intelligence can include information about disease outbreaks; the ability of a foreign regime to respond to chemical, biological, and nuclear attacks; the capabilities of overseas drugs companies; advances in medical technology; medical research, and the medical response capabilities of various governments, according to the document and others like it, provided by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. The documents show that such intelligence is used in efforts to protect U.S. forces, assess the readiness of foreign armies, create opportunities for U.S. diplomats to build goodwill, uncover chemical weapons programs, identify specific bio-weapons facilities, and study how diseases spread.

The existence and broad contours of U.S. medical intelligence collection have been previously disclosed (as has one of its more nefarious uses, in which the flow of medical supplies would be used to hunt down a targeted individual). But a top-secret, previously-unreleased article published in November 2003 in the NSA’s internal newsletter, SIDtoday, details the birth of a collaboration between the agency and the DIA’s National Center for Medical Intelligence, then known as the Armed Forces Medical Intelligence Center. (The article is being published along with 262 others by The Intercept today; here are some other highlights.)  [Read more:  McLaughlin/TheIntercept/10August2016]

When Friends Spy on Friends: The Case of Jonathan Pollard.  Former Navy intelligence analyst Jonathan Jay Pollard delivered over 800 highly classified documents to the Israeli government over a 17-month period. According to an article by Seymour Hersh published in the New Yorker, Pollard stole and sold militarily sensitive Signals Intelligence information, a year's worth of memos by intelligence officers in the U.S. Navy's Sixth Fleet recording  their observations of Soviet planes, ships, and submarines in the Mediterranean Sea, documents on how Navy intelligence was tracking Soviet submarines, and material revealing the capabilities of one of America's most highly classified photo-reconnaissance satellites.  In a 1998 op-ed published in the Washington Post, four former directors of naval intelligence noted that Pollard "offered classified information to three other countries before working for the Israelis and that he offered his services to a fourth country while he was spying for Israel."

FBI agents arrested Pollard in Washington on Nov. 21, 1985 after he sought political asylum at the Israeli Embassy in Washington. He pleaded guilty to leaking classified documents and was sentenced to life imprisonment in 1987 with a mandatory-parole clause after 30 years. He was released November 20, 2015.

Officials at the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv and at the State Department described their perspectives on the case. Thomas Pickering, Ambassador to Israel from 1985 to 1988, was interviewed by Charles Stuart Kennedy in April 2003. Samuel W. Lewis, who served as Ambassador to Israel from 1977 to 1985, was interviewed by Peter Jessup in August 1998.  Kennedy also interviewed Joseph G. Sullivan, U.S. Embassy Tel Aviv's deputy political counselor from 1984 to 1988, in January 2009; Roger Harrison, Embassy Tel Aviv's political counselor 1985-1987, in November 2001; and Phillip C. Wilcox, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Near East Affairs, 1984-1987, in April 1998.  [Read more:  Baroody/ADST/10August2016]

2016 "Bobby R. Inman Award" Winners Announced.  The Intelligence Studies Project of the University of Texas at Austin is pleased to announce the winner and two semifinalists of the second "Bobby R. Inman Award" recognizing outstanding student research and writing on topics related to intelligence and national security during the 2015-2016 academic year.

The recipient of the 2016 "Inman Award" is Quentin Buckholz, a Masters of International Affairs candidate at Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs. In his paper, "The 1980's War Scare: Misperceptions, Mistaken Beliefs, and Missed Signals in US-Soviet Relations," Mr. Buckholz assesses how the Soviet Union came to believe in the threat of a nuclear first strike by the United States in the early 1980s, and how US intelligence misinterpreted or dismissed that fear.

The graduate student semifinalist is Daniel Severson, a recent J.D. and M.P.P. graduate of Harvard University. His paper, "National Security Reporting Requirements: Managing the Tension Between Secrecy and Accountability," explores the potential benefits and limitations of reporting requirements mandating disclosure to Congress of the legal rationale underlying certain sensitive intelligence activities.

The undergraduate semifinalist is James "Jake" Barnett, a recent graduate of the University of Texas at Austin. Mr. Barnett's History Honors Thesis, "When Culture Eats Strategy: Examining the Phoenix/Phung Hoang Bureaucracy in the Vietnam War," uses statistical methods to assess the effectiveness of (and accountability for) US counterinsurgency programs undertaken during the Vietnam conflict.  [Read more:  UT/August2016]

Pentagon Releases New Procedures for Intelligence Collection.  Today, the Department of Defense released revised procedures - along with an accompanying fact sheet - governing the conduct of its intelligence activities. DoD Manual 5240.01, ensures that Defense Department policy complies with DoD Directive 5240.01 and Executive Order 12333, which authorize Defense components to collect, retain, and disseminate information concerning U.S. persons and conduct other activities "in accordance with the Constitution and laws of the United States".

The manual's provisions apply to all DOD components, the U.S. military and defense intelligence agencies - including the National Security Agency. These latest revisions were approved by the Attorney General and Secretary of Defense after consultation with the Director of National Intelligence.

Updates to 5240 are long-overdue. The manual was last issued in 1982, the same year that Time named the personal computer the "Machine of the Year," and one year prior to the magazine's newsroom transition from typewriters to word processors. The intervening decades have seen dramatic developments in the technology, law, and practice surrounding intelligence collection and analysis, raising novel questions regarding privacy and civil liberties. Following the 9/11 attacks, these capabilities developed further in the face of new asymmetric threats and demands for greater information sharing and the intelligence community underwent rounds of reform, including the creation of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

In light of these developments, the revised manual makes six major changes to the previous version, including updating the definitions for "collection" and "publicly available information," as well as creating new rules regarding the retention of information from U.S. persons, information sharing within the intelligence community, and conducting physical searches for foreign intelligence purposes.  [Read more:  Poplin/Lawfare/10August2016]

NSA Hacked? 'Shadow Brokers' Crew Claims Compromise Of Surveillance Op.  Has the NSA just been hacked? Security experts speaking with Forbes think it's possible, after a group published malware and attack code allegedly belonging to the Equation Group, a crew linked to the US intelligence agency. But while many believe the leak looks legitimate, the hackers could have pulled off a very clever ruse.

In 2015, researchers at Russian security company Kaspersky Lab revealed a highly-advanced arsenal of hacking tools used by the Equation campaign. They were believed to have been the work of the NSA as the code was linked with previous, allegedly US-sponsored hacks, including the infamous Regin and Stuxnet attacks. That link, however, was never definitively proven nor admitted by the signals intelligence body.

Two days ago, on August 13, a group calling themselves The Shadow Brokers released files on Github, claiming they came from the Equation Group. The files included code allegedly designed to exploit firewalls from American manufacturers Cisco, Juniper and Fortinet . One Chinese company, Topsec, was also an Equation target, according to the leaks. None of the manufacturers had responded to requests for comment at the time of publication.

The hackers released 60 per cent of the files they claimed to have taken from the Equation Group. The Shadow Brokers said they would release the remaining data to the highest bidder in a Bitcoin auction (they've received two bids so far). If they received an extraordinary 1,000,000 Bitcoins, worth roughly $560 million, they would release all the files.  [Read more:  Fox-Brewster/Forbes/15August2016]

Ex-MI6 Chief Sir Maurice Oldfield: On Margaret's Secret Service.  He was one of Britain's most successful spymasters, battling Nazi agents during the Second World War and the KGB in the Cold War. But, as a new biography reveals, nothing had prepared ex-MI6 chief Sir Maurice Oldfield for the most challenging and controversial assignment of his career...appointed by Margaret Thatcher to tackle the IRA and vicious inter-service rivalry in Northern Ireland.

A few minutes before midday on Bank Holiday Monday, August 27, 1979, the tranquil calm of the Co Sligo fishing village of Mullaghmore was suddenly shattered when an explosion ripped apart a small fishing boat, the Shadow V. The blast, caused by a 50lb bomb that had been planted on the boat by the Provisional IRA and detonated by remote control, claimed the life of perhaps the most high-profile victim of the Troubles - the Queen's cousin, Lord Louis Mountbatten. Also killed in the explosion were the Dowager Lady Brabourne, Mountbatten's grandson Nicholas Knatchbull and Paul Maxwell, a 15-year-old local boat boy.

Just four hours later, with the British and Irish authorities still reeling from Mountbatten's assassination, 18 soldiers, including a Lieutenant-Colonel, were massacred in a double bomb blast near Warrenpoint, the Army's heaviest casualties in a single incident during the Troubles.

The devastating attacks carried out by the Provisional IRA that day at Mullaghmore and Warrenpoint were a shattering blow and came at a time when the security forces were beginning to hope that they'd turned a corner in the fight against terrorism, with casualties steadily reducing year on year.  [Read more:  Taylor/BelfastTelegraph/13August2016]


Section III - COMMENTARY

'IT is Mission': How Data Is Revolutionizing Intelligence.  Intelligence agencies must stop viewing information technology as a back-office support service and instead elevate it to its rightful place as a mission-critical capability, argues Sean Roche, associate deputy director of digital innovation for the CIA.

"Stop treating IT like a service. Stop treating IT with the word 'customer.' Stop treating IT like it's part of the admin portion of your organization," he told the Department of Defense Intelligence Information Systems (DoDIIS) worldwide conference Aug. 2. "IT is mission."

The distinction "changes the way we go about funding and prioritizing programs," he said. It also has significant implications for the kinds of skills and talent intelligence agencies will need in the future, and for how systems are built, managed and designed.

For much of the past two decades, networks were the critical assets in intelligence - the ability to interact and quickly communicate across secure networks helped deliver data to the tactical edge more and more quickly. The time lag between intelligence shrunk from days to hours, minutes, even seconds. But in a data-centric world, intelligence is crossing into new territory. It is increasingly possible to predict likely outcomes, allowing national security leaders to make better decisions more quickly. [Read more:  Naegele/GovTechWorks/10August2016]

Little Britain: Brexit and the UK-US Special Intelligence Relationship.  The past month has seen an earthquake of magnitude ten in British politics, producing seismic shocks across the European Union and the Atlantic. First came the decision to exit the EU, the most surprising political result in modern British history, which not only led to the downfall of David Cameron, but also plunged the UK into a constitutional crisis. Then came the publication of John Chilcot's long-awaited report into the invasion of Iraq in 2003, which reveals that Tony Blair's government went to war on the basis of faulty intelligence. Although the referendum and the Chilcot report were not connected, their quick succession has pulverised the British Establishment. The summer of 2016 is when fundamental questions are being asked about the future of the UK, its politics, and its role in the world.

Before the referendum, a vigorous debate arose from comments made in this magazine by Richard Dearlove, a former Chief of the Secret Intelligence Service (SIS), who argued there would be national security advantages for Britain leaving the EU. Now the UK has voted to do so, previously speculative debates are reality and will have to become policy matters for the new Prime Minister, Theresa May.

Both before and after the referendum, one subject has received insufficient attention: its likely impact on one of the most important aspects of British foreign policy at present, the "special" intelligence relationship between Britain and the United States. Contrary to what other commentators have suggested, Brexit threatens to undermine, and even terminate, the UK-US special intelligence relationship. The reasons for this are historical: it is only by considering Brexit's broader past context that we can appreciate its full implications. Brexit, a tectonic shift, represents the biggest realignment in European security since 1945.  [Read more:  Walton/Prospect/10August2016]

Tuesday 16 August 2016, 7:30 to 8:45 PM - McLean, VA - Congressman Frank Wolf discusses "Nigeria and Boko Haram" at the Westminster Institute

Nigeria is on the verge of fracturing along religious fault lines. Ethnic and religious minorities in northern Nigeria face systemic and systematic discrimination. Muslims and Christians in northeastern Nigeria are profoundly and negatively impacted by the terrorist violence pursued by Boko Haram. Christians risk extinction in Nigeria's northeast.
Congressman Frank Wolf was widely acknowledged as the "conscience" of the Congress during his long service in the House of Representatives. First elected in 1980, he left Congress at the end of his 17th term in 2015 to focus exclusively on human rights and religious freedom.

Former Congressman Frank Wolf is Senior Fellow of the 21st Century Wilberforce Initiative.

Long before the "Arab Spring" turned into an "Arab Winter," Congressman Wolf sounded the alarm about the worsening plight of religious minorities, notably the ancient Christian communities in both Iraq and Egypt.

He has recently returned from a trip to Nigeria. Nigeria is on the verge of fracturing along religious fault lines. Ethnic and religious minorities in northern Nigeria face systemic and systematic discrimination. Muslims and Christians in northeastern Nigeria are profoundly and negatively impacted by the terrorist violence pursued by Boko Haram. Christians risk extinction in Nigeria's northeast.

Congressman Wolf continues to be an advocate for those who cannot speak for themselves. In January 2015, he was appointed the first-ever Wilson Chair in Religious Freedom at Baylor University. That same month he joined the 21st Century Wilberforce Initiative, a newly created religious freedom group, as Distinguished Senior Fellow.

He is the author of the International Religious Freedom Act, which infused America's first freedom - religious freedom - into US foreign policy by creating the International Religious Freedom Office at the State Department.

Where: Westminster Institute, 6729 Curran St, McLean, VA 22101.

Wednesday, 24 August 2016, noon- 2 pm - Washington, DC - Debriefing the President - at the International Spy Museum

In December 2003, after one of the largest, most aggressive manhunts in history, US military forces captured Iraqi president Saddam Hussein near his hometown. Beset by body-double rumors and false alarms, the Bush administration needed positive identification of the prisoner before announcing the capture. John Nixon was a senior CIA leadership analyst who had spent years studying the Iraqi dictator. Called upon to make the official ID, Nixon looked for telltale scars and tattoos and asked Hussein questions only he could answer―the man was indeed Saddam Hussein. Join Nixon as he exposes the preconceived ideas that led Washington policymakers astray and presents a new perspective on America's most enigmatic enemy in Debriefing the President. Tickets: FREE. Visit www.spymuseum.org

Wednesday, 24 August 2016, 6:30 pm- 8:30 pm - Washington, DC - Spies on Screen: The Tall Blond Man with One Black Shoe - at the International Spy Museum

When this lighthearted tale of espionage, surveillance, and mistaken identity premiered in 1972 it became an international sensation. Pierre Richard is Francois the tall blond man, an unsuspecting violinist who becomes a pawn in a goofy, but deadly, game of spy versus spy within France's Counter-Espionage department. The screwball comedy features a fabulous femme fatale, much slapstick, and lots and lots of collateral damage. Enjoy popcorn and sparkling French soda along with the evening's screening. In French with English subtitles; screening at the Spy Museum. Cosponsored by the Alliance Française de Washington and Film Movement. Tickets: $10. Visit www.spymuseum.org

28 - 29 October 2016 - The Hague, Netherlands - "Witness to Change: Intelligence Analysis in a Changing Environment" is topic of the NISA 25th Anniversary Conference

The Netherlands Intelligence Studies Association (NISA) celebrates its 25th anniversary with a two-days conference. Main theme is the strongly changed environment of the intelligence analyst during these past 25 years.
In other words: the 25th anniversary as a symbol for the revolutionary changes in the intelligence world with which analysts have to deal; both external developments (the onset of a multipolar world, asymmetric conflicts, the information revolution), and internal changes (in collecting, processing, dissemination, legitimization and supervision).
These developments forced intelligence analysts and organisations to adapt work processes and methods and techniques. Intelligence analysts still mostly operate in secret, but the demands of intelligence consumers and the public have changed over the last 25 years. Social and technological developments have changed the playing field and the rules of the game for the intelligence analyst, leading to an enormous growth in (publicly) available information and means of communication, and demands for more transparency and accountability. Aim of the conference is to touch on the consequences of this changed environment, and to look ahead.

Participants are invited to listen to distinguished experts in the field, and to enter into discussions on various topics relating to intelligence analysis.

The Conference will be held at the Nationaal Archief (the National Archive), Prins Willem Alexanderhof 20, The Hague, the Netherlands.
The conference program may be viewed here as a PDF.

Conference Fee: Standard Fee: Eur175; Student Fee: Eur80 (proof of status required). Fee covers registration, lunch and drinks.
To join the Conference Diner on Friday 28 October 2016, an extra fee of Eur30 is applicable.
