Department of the Prime Minsister and Cabinet

On 18 July the Prime Minister announced the Government would establish an Office of National Intelligence (ONI) as part of its response to the 2017 Independent Intelligence Review.

Following the Prime Minister's announcement, an unknown party or parties has established fake social media profiles and a fake website for ONI.

These are not official Australian Government accounts. The establishment of ONI is part of a detailed process to implement reforms to Australia’s intelligence and national security arrangements being overseen by the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet.

No website or social media presences have been established for the ONI.
