Keynote Speaker: The Honorable James R. Clapper, Director of National Intelligence


This symposium will be conducted at the SECRET level and is only open to U.S. citizens who currently hold the appropriate security clearance

"Change" and the "Intelligence Community" (IC) have become synonymous terms since September 2001. The creation of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) and a focus on integration and sharing were key tenets of the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act (IRTPA). During the National Military Intelligence Association (NMIA) 2012 National Intelligence Symposium (NIS) we will explore the current state of the Intelligence Community. We will place particular emphasis on how the IC will address meeting dynamic demands on intelligence in face of our country's deficit and budget challenges. We will examine how contractors have played a significant role supporting the IC; and what changes can we expect going forward. Additionally, there will be discussions on initiatives such as the "Quint" (DIA, NSA, NGA, NRO, CIA); which is a manifestation of the reality of IC cooperation by taking advantage of the huge potential for savings in Information Technology integration; specifically in Cloud Computing. At NIS 2012 the speakers from the national intelligence agencies and the military intelligence services will provide an update on the current state of the intelligence community and an outlook on what to expect for the future.

Invited speakers include seniors from the national IC organizations: CIA, USD(I), NSA, DIA, NGA, NRO, DHS, and the Intelligence Chiefs of the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, and Coast Guard.
