Intelligence analysis is pivotal to informing and sustaining all of our national security efforts. In the last few decades, the US intelligence community has helped thwart terrorists and chart out the impacts of key global trends but it has also had its shortfalls, such as projecting the rapid spread of the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS). As technology evolves and proliferates, as nonstate actors build more sophisticated, complex networks, and entire regions are reshaped, the work of this community must adapt. 

Please join us for the first public on-the-record discussion by Dr. Gregory F. Treverton in his new role as the chairman of the US National Intelligence Council to speak about the above issues and more.
