President's Commission on Critical Infrastructure Protection

William B. Joyce


Mr. William B. Joyce joined the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in 1972. Prior to becoming a Commissioner, he served as the Deputy Chief of the CIA's Foreign Broadcast Information Service (FBIS) engineering office from 1994 onward. In this position he oversaw the transformation of FBIS's 50-year-old publishing operation to a diversified on-line service providing near-real-time access for thousands of users worldwide to foreign media reports translated from more than 100 languages.

From 1992-1994, Mr. Joyce managed the first worldwide customer outreach program for FBIS. During this time, he chaired a major review of the FBIS overseas collection infrastructure resulting in realignment of collection resources.

Mr. Joyce managed FBIS bureaus in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa from 1979-1992 in addition to earlier assignments in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. He managed field collection sites responsible for monitoring broadcast and telecommunications systems providing foreign open-source information responsive to intelligence requirements.

Between foreign assignments, he served as chief of the FBIS 24-hour watch office, and was also responsible for tracking and analyzing foreign broadcast and international telecommunications systems.

Before entering the CIA, Mr. Joyce worked in several occupations: He served as a counter-intelligence officer in the U.S. Army from 1967-1970, a general news reporter for United Press International (UPI) in Des Moines, Iowa; and a Public Relations Field Coordinator for the State of Illinois' Sesquicentennial Commission from 1966-1967.

Mr. Joyce holds a bachelor's degree in English from Illinois Wesleyan University and a master's degree in Journalism from Northwestern University.
