Ninety-four CISS students participated in the Center for Intelligence and Security Studies’ 9th annual ‘Days of Intrigue’ (DOI) intelligence simulation on April 12-13, 2019, making it the largest DOI ever.  This year’s simulation focused on emerging security threats in Venezuela.  Officers from the Central Intelligence Agency, Defense Intelligence Agency, Department of Homeland Security, Department of State, Federal Bureau of Investigation, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, National Security Agency, Office of Naval Intelligence, and Mississippi Analysis and Information Center attended the simulation.  Officers from CIA, DIA, NSA, FBI, and the State Department led teams corresponding to their agencies and shared insights with the students about careers in the IC.   The annual DOI simulation allows students to experience what life is like working a crisis account in the intelligence community and to have an opportunity to practice the critical thinking, writing, and briefing skills that are emphasized in the ISS curriculum.
