ASIO / ASIS -
Their Role in the National Security Community

A senior leader each from ASIO and ASIS will be discussing their organisations' roles in the Australian national security community.  This is an opportunity for young professionals to find out more about ASIO and ASIS, how they operate and what they require from their people.

ASIO is Australia’s security intelligence agency and its role is to identify and investigate threats to security, wherever they arise, and to provide advice to protect Australia, its people and its interests. ASIO gathers information and produces intelligence that will enable it to warn the government about activities or situations that might endanger Australia's national security. 
                                                                                  
ASIS is Australia’s overseas secret intelligence collection agency. Its mission is to protect and promote Australia’s vital interests through the provision of intelligence services as directed by Government. It obtains and distributes foreign intelligence, not available by other means, to assist the Australian Government and policy-makers in informing their decisions on matters of national interest and security. ASIS is a statutory agency that provides foreign intelligence for those departments that formulate policy. Its other functions, as stated in the Intelligence Services Act 2001, include counter-intelligence activities and communicating with intelligence and security services overseas.
