Conference on Intelligence Ethics, National Intelligence University, 2012

"The National Intelligence University (NIU) hosted two Intelligence Ethics conferences over the past four months. The first conference discussed the importance of instituting ethical codes to assist intelligence professionals as they encounter morally ambiguous situations. Senior officials and experts shared their thoughts and experiences with 125 persons representing all major agencies in the IC. Later, on 10 May 2012, the NIU held a second conference for 40 persons in a workshop format. NIU students who had been enrolled over the past academic year in the Intelligence Ethics class presented six alternative intelligence ethos and code proposals to the workshop participants, with ample time for questions and answers about the merits of each proposal. The participants agreed that certain core principles captured a sense of commonality among intelligence professionals."
