Forensics, counterintelligence, and the IWP experience: In the words of certificate alumna Nancy Berthold

"As IWP students realize, the history of intelligence and counterintelligence is riddled by forgeries and deceptions, which were often accepted at face value by policymakers, thus, affecting historical outcomes. This still astounds me as a certified questioned document examiner. The US Government has some world-class examiners but, if no one questions a document in the first place, dire incidents can occur."

Donor Spotlight: Meet Tidal McCoy

Tidal McCoy has supported IWP almost since its inception. Having spent 25 years in the national security field, he understands the importance of an excellent education for professionals in this field.

Mr. McCoy observes, "For all the national security policy I was involved in [shaping] later [under] Reagan and that I was implementing in the Pentagon, the bottom line is that you have to have officers who are well-trained, relatively well-paid, respected by the American people, and prepared to make a sacrifice for their country... This is also true for junior intelligence officers, collectors, and analysts."
