DHS Establishes Homeland Intelligence Advisory Board

The Department of Homeland Security has created the Homeland Intelligence Advisory Board to advise on national and homeland security intelligence matters.

Reporting to the undersecretary for intelligence and analysis and the DHS counterterrorism coordinator, the board will provide insights on intelligence activities and ensure adherence to privacy and civil liberty principles, the DHS said.

Established under Section 871(a) of the Homeland Security Act of 2002, the board will consist of up to 40 members appointed by the undersecretary. They will come from various fields, including intelligence, homeland security, privacy, law enforcement and academia.

The board, which replaces the Homeland Intelligence Experts Group established in 2023, is tasked to continue fostering diverse perspectives on intelligence challenges. Members of the Experts Group will also be included in the newly created board.

According to the DHS, the board will hold quarterly meetings and serve as a platform for exchanging ideas and conducting independent assessments of the department’s intelligence activities.

Due to its sensitive discussions, the Homeland Intelligence Advisory Board will be exempt from public disclosure requirements.
