The National Security Agency (NSA) is a world leader in the protection and exploitation of intelligence. We gather and analyze foreign intelligence to produce vital information for U.S. policy makers and warfighters. And we protect American intelligence from the ever-listening ears of our adversaries, giving our Nation a decisive edge. But it’s what you do with your intelligence that makes the difference.
