New Zealand Intelligence Community
We exist to protect New Zealand as a free, open, and democratic society.
We form the core national intelligence, assessment and protective security functions within the New Zealand Intelligence Community (NZIC).
The intelligence-based insights and advice provided by the NZIC contribute to decisions that sustain and enhance New Zealand’s security and wellbeing.
The GCSB collects Signals Intelligence, in accordance with New Zealand’s National Security Intelligence Priorities - Whakaarotau Marumaru Aotearoa, and provides that intelligence to relevant parties to support informed decision making. The GCSB also ensures the integrity and confidentially of government information, provides cyber security services to organisations of national significance, and assists other New Zealand government agencies.Find out more
