On Thursday 19 October, the NATO Counter Intelligence Center of Excellence (CI COE) was officially opened in Krakow, Poland. It is a joint initiative of Poland and Slovakia who, with the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding on 29 September at the SACT in Norfolk, Virginia, became the so-called Framework Nations responsible for running the centre.

This international military organization has also been supported by a number of other East European and Central European states including the Czech Republic. The CI COE aims to improve NATO's capabilities in counter-intelligence through its expertise, including interoperability among the Member States in this area. The objective of the Center is, among other things, to develop, promote and help implement new policies, concepts, and strategies in the counter-intelligence area, as well as to provide special training courses for intelligence services. The interoperability of the intelligence services of the Alliance's member states is a particularly criticised area, especially regarding information exchange in the context of terrorist attacks and their prevention.
