About Us

The NZIIP is an incorporated society with the vision of “shaping intelligence pathways” within New Zealand.

We exist to provide benefit to our members who are intelligence practitioners working in a wide and diverse range of roles within the fields of national security, defence, law enforcement, compliance, business, academia and information technology.


The vision of the NZIIP is “shaping intelligence pathways” within the New Zealand intelligence profession by:

  • Providing a source of independent  commentary and advice for intelligence professionals
  • Advocating on behalf of the profession
  • Enhancing the careers of members by providing support for intelligence professionals and aspiring professionals
  • Collaborating with education institutions to develop qualifications which attract aspiring intelligence professionals and advance those already in the profession
  • Establishing strategic alliances to benefit members, the aims of the Institute and the intelligence community as a whole
  • Encouraging networking, relationship building and enterprise within the Institute’s membership and across the intelligence community; and
  • Supporting understanding of leading edge technology which may benefit the intelligence community
