Intelligence collection

GCSB provides the New Zealand Government with intelligence that allows decision makers to generate policy and operational impacts.

GCSB is New Zealand’s primary source of Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) generated foreign intelligence. Through the use of SIGINT capabilities and by leveraging relationships with New Zealand and international partners, GCSB is well placed to provide key intelligence insights to government decision-makers and other New Zealand Government agencies. This enables enhanced policy development and informed geo-political decision making. 

GCSB aims to ensure New Zealand’s security and advance the country’s national interest, ensure regional security in the Pacific and support New Zealand agencies to carry out their functions.
