The National Intelligence and Risk Coordination team has a dual, interconnected function of leading the delivery of the National Security and Intelligence Priorities, and the National Risk Approach.
National Security and Intelligence Priorities
The National Security and Intelligence Priorities are the government's key priority areas for intelligence, information and assessment.
The Priorities, agreed by Cabinet, help agencies to streamline and prioritise resourcing and information needs, to deliver better decision making across government.
We provide sector leadership as Chair of the National Intelligence Coordination Committee and by working alongside sector coordination functions.
National Risk Approach
The National Risk Approach is a key mechanism used across government to manage New Zealand’s most nationally significant risks.
We lead the assessment and support strategic governance of nationally significant risks. We use a number of tools to help us identify gaps and opportunities in risk management. We engage with key stakeholders in risk coordinating agencies and focus on sector governance of these risks to ensure the National Risk Approach is sustainable and effective.
The National Intelligence and Risk Coordination team is led by Nicky Eaton.
