National security analysts utilize mathematics, computer programming, engineering, and language skills as well as new technologies and creativity to solve tomorrow's problems.

The national security analyst practice is found in its purest form inside intelligence agencies, such as the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in the United States or the Secret Intelligence Service (SIS) in the UK. Its methods are also applicable in fields such as business intelligence or competitive intelligence.
