The NATO Communications and Information Agency:
Leading NATO’s Digital Endeavour

We are NATO's technology and cyber leaders. We help NATO Nations communicate and work together in smarter ways. Our solutions underpin NATO's ability to perform Article IV (consultation) and Article V (command and control).

Our Vision: A fully digital NATO enterprise that ensures consultation and collective defence.

Our Mission:  Lead NATO's digital endeavour.

We cooperate with industry and academia to provide resilient C4ISR* technology that saves lives and safeguards peace for nearly 1 billion citizens.

We acquire, deploy and defend communications systems for NATO's political decision-makers and Commands; we are on the frontlines against cyber-attacks, working closely with governments and industry to prevent future debilitating attacks.

The NATO Communications and Information Agency's (NCI Agency) has 4 main campuses – Brussels (BE), Mons (BE), The Hague (NL) and Oeiras (PT). The NCI Agency has over 30 locations in Europe, North America and South-East Asia in support of our customers and NATO operations. 


Agency Governance

The Agency is the executive arm of the NATO Communication and Information Organisation (NCIO), which aims to achieve maximum effectiveness in delivering C3 capabilities  to stakeholders, while ensuring their coherence and interoperability, and ensuring the provision of secure CIS services at minimum cost to Allies – individually and collectively.

NCIO is managed by an Agency Supervisory Board (ASB) composed of representative from each NATO Nation. The ASB oversees the work of the NCIO. After consulting with the NATO Secretary General, NCIO's ASB appoints the General Manager of the Agency. All NATO nations are members of the NCIO.

The ASB, which reports to the North Atlantic Council (NAC), issues directives and makes general policy decisions to enable NCIO to carry out its work. Its decisions on fundamental issues such as policy, finance, organization and establishment require unanimous agreement by all member countries.
