The General Intelligence and Security Service of the Netherlands (AIVD) plays a vital part in Dutch national security. We seek to identify risks and threats before they become apparent. This is done by conducting in-depth investigations to gather intelligence. The Intelligence Directorate conducts investigations, provides information, and mobilises third parties to safeguard the democratic legal order and national security, to actively reduce risks, and to contribute to foreign policy-making. In the Joint Sigint Cyber Unit (JSCU) the AIVD and MIVD have joined forces. They combine expertise and resources in the field of Signals Intelligence (Sigint) and cyberactivities. With the interception of communications the JSCU supports teams that investigate threats to the Netherlands and the armed forces. In the NCSS framework, they are also helping to safeguard the internet. The Netherlands National Communications Security Agency (NBV) promotes the protection of crucial government information. As a government partner and advisor they have unique qualities when it comes to information security. The Security Screenings & Business Administration Directorate is not only responsible for security screenings, but also for internal products and services as well as for information management. Together the AIVD makes an active and tangible contribution to national security in the Netherlands.
