Counter-Intelligence, by Robert Hannigan, explores the role of the intelligence services in history and contemporary society, from the codebreakers and problem-solvers to innovation and creativity, secrecy, transparency and the global tech community. The book traces the history of counter-intelligence, while reflecting on some of the unique characteristics of the engineers, mathematicians and scientists who make up the world’s intelligence community.

In this wide-ranging conversation, Mr Hannigan will discuss events from the early days of Bletchley Park to the ongoing work of GCHQ. He will also explain how the world of secret intelligence can provide insights into tackling problems in life and business.

The webinar will be moderated by Gill Bennett, RUSI Senior Associate Fellow and former Chief Historian, Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
