Washington: The Central Intelligence Agency is starting one of the most sweeping reorganisations in its history, aimed in part at sharpening its focus on cyber operations and incorporating digital innovations into intelligence gathering, CIA director John Brennan said.

In a presentation to reporters this week, Brennan said he also is creating new units within the CIA, called "mission centres," intended to concentrate the agency`s focus on specific challenges or geographic areas, such as weapons proliferation or Africa.
