CIA Unveils Redesigned Public Website
24 June 2013
The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) today introduced a major redesign of its public website, www.cia.gov, to make it more accessible to users. The revamped website includes a wealth of new and updated information along with innovative features. As Director John O. Brennan noted, “The new and improved website reflects CIA’s strong commitment to educating and informing the American people about the Agency’s history, mission, and organization. I encourage the public to explore the website and learn more about an American institution dedicated to protecting our country’s security. ”
The new design provides users a sleeker, more modern web experience, while offering a more user-friendly layout for the site’s extensive content. At the top of the homepage, users will find a selection of rotating featured stories. This section will be routinely updated to highlight informative and interesting features. The layout also makes the full content of the website—including hundreds of unique pages and interactive features—more easily navigable.
Other enhancements to the revamped website include:
- The Video Center features many of CIA’s most popular videos on one page, allowing users to view our YouTube video stream without leaving CIA.gov.
- The Careers Section includes a new “Job Cart” allowing prospective employees to apply for up to four jobs at once as well a “Job Fit Tool” to assist them in finding job matches.
- The Historical Collections Division allows visitors to browse more easily CIA’s declassified historical collections, view book summaries, and read Center for the Study of Intelligence articles.
- CIA’s have been consolidated into three categories—CIA Newsroom, CIA Careers, and CIA Library—to streamline and provide users with the information of most interest.
