(GCHQ was unable to attend due to a computer failure.) As noted in a previous SIDtoday article , the tool allows voice conversation, messaging, collaboration on documents, etc. The decision to hold this and subsequent meetings was made by the leadership group as a way to work together to advance the 5-Eyes Business Vision , which they prepared earlier this year. (U//FOUO) Most of the IWS discussion, which lasted over an hour, was centered on efforts against terrorism, especially ways to extend cooperation across the SIGINT community, and to include the HUMINT community. The leaders agreed to schedule another session around the middle of January.
