Civilian Intelligence Committee (CIC)
The Civilian Intelligence Committee (CIC) is the sole body that handles civilian intelligence issues at NATO. It reports directly to the North Atlantic Council and advises it on matters of espionage and terrorist or related threats, which may affect the Alliance.
Each NATO member country is represented on the Committee by its security and intelligence services. It is chaired on an annual rotational basis by the nations.
The CIC is supported in its day-to-day work by the International Staff’s NATO Office of Security.
