We form the core national intelligence, assessment and protective security functions within the NZIC, together with the National Assessments Bureau within the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet (DPMC).
We also work with other agencies such as the New Zealand Police, the New Zealand Customs Service, the New Zealand Defence Force, and Immigration New Zealand.
The GCSB and NZSIS are at the heart of New Zealand’s national security effort and we exist to protect our country as a free, open and democratic society.
We work to ensure that New Zealand is protected from harm and that New Zealand policy makers have intelligence to support good decision making.
While we both work every day to build a safer and more prosperous New Zealand we do this in different ways.
