INSA’s Councils and Task Forces reflect INSA’s mission to facilitate collaboration between the public and private sectors for non-partisan, practical solutions to our national security challenges. INSA’s Councils and Task Forces produce white papers testimony and expert level answers to policy requests from the White House, the National Security Council, the ODNI, the Pentagon and various Executive Branch Agencies and Congressional Committees.

INSA is the center around which the once-independent efforts of intelligence professionals, industry leaders and academic experts are aligning. The results are exponentially more effective intelligence solutions that meet our most pressing intelligence and national security challenges.

Precise, Actionable Analysis on Multiple Fronts

INSA is home to multiple councils and task forces, each focused on a critical theme of intelligence and national security. Councils are enduring bodies that examine a broad range of issues related to their central theme, while task forces are temporary in nature and established to examine one critical and current issue in intelligence and national security. Each council and task force is composed of highly experienced professionals dedicated to maximizing the effectiveness of our intelligence and national security policies.
