Security and Intelligence Secretariat

The Security and Intelligence Secretariat (SIS) provides advice to the Prime Minister on national security and foreign intelligence matters, including major policy developments, public issues, crises and community priorities. It supports ministerial decision-making on security and intelligence matters, helping departments and agencies bring forward security and intelligence issues for ministerial discussion or approval. It also ensures the security of Cabinet meetings and the facilities of the Prime Minister's Office and the Privy Council Office.

The Assistant Secretary, Security and Intelligence, chairs the interdepartmental Intelligence Policy Group of Assistant Deputy Minister-level officials from the security and intelligence community. This group, which is the principal forum for policy and operational coordination within the community, examines such issues as challenges posed by changing technologies.
