The National Security Bureau, officially the National Security Bureau of the Regional Command of the Syrian Regional Branch, is a Ba'ath Party bureau which coordinates the work of Syria's intelligence agencies and advises the Regional Secretary. The individual intelligence agencies, however, in practice have a significant degree of independence and generally report directly to the president.[1] The current head of the National Security Bureau is Ahmad Diyab.[citation needed]
