The Pentagon is rebranding and reorganizing its clandestine spy shop, sending more of its case officers to work alongside CIA officers to gather intelligence in places like China, after a decade of focusing intensely on war zones.
Agencies are struggling to keep up with the tremendous amount of data being created every day.

The Defense Intelligence Agency wants the "revolving door" between government and industry to swing both ways, making it easier for employees to return to the agency after they've left. DIA Deputy Director David Shedd said a new entry-exit program is just getting off the ground to meet the changing needs of its newer — and younger — workforce. This story is part of Federal News Radio's ongoing coverage of the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, "9/11: A Government Changed."
DIA Director Army Lt. Gen. Ronald Burgess said the benefits of information sharing outweigh the risks. He cited the importance of building relationships and the Internet as an information-gathering tool.

This year's conference theme, "Leveraging Efficiencies for Operational Effectiveness," will bring together experts from government, industry, professional trade organizations, and academia to share their insights, outlooks and perspectives on the most relevant issues, opportunities and challenges we are facing today as we deliver new technologies and operational capabilities to our war fighters and our national security customers.
