"A new Defense Counterintelligence and Human Intelligence Center (DCHC) is being established at the Defense Intelligence Agency to manage, develop and execute DoD counterintelligence and human intelligence activities worldwide. It will take over many of the functions and authorities of the Counterintelligence Field Activity (CIFA), which drew criticism for its unauthorized domestic surveillance activities.... CIFA will be terminated effective August 3.... The new organization was described in a July 22 memorandum from the Deputy Secretary of Defense," which is available at:

"U.S. counterintelligence (CI) elements must refocus to defend against the rapidly expanding cyberintelligence collection threat.... The greatest threat is from trusted insiders with placement and access to highly sensitive classified information. It is a relatively simple task to plug in a miniature datastorage device and save hundreds of megabytes of classified data they can easily smuggle out."
