The British foreign intelligence service.
MI6 was formed in 1909 as the Secret Service Bureau. The Secret Intelligence Service (SIS) is frequently referred to by the name MI6 (Military Intelligence, Section 6), a name used as a flag of convenience during the Second World War when it was known by many names. The existence of MI6 was not officially acknowledged until 1994.

(UK GOVERNMENT) also spelled MI6; the Secret Intelligence Service. Under the control of the Home Secretary, along with MI-5 and General Communications Headquarters (GCHQ).

There is no simple division of labor between the two agencies; MI-5 usually is involved with domestic operations, and MI-6 is usually involved in overseas operations, but the real distinction is that one houses one group of agencies, and the other houses another. Like MI-5, the SIS/MI-6 was founded in 1909 as a joint operation between the Admiralty and the War Office.

During the Cold War, the agency was badly compromised by pro-Soviet staff (the "Cambridge Spy Ring"). It later recovered from Soviet penetration and recruited Col. Oleg Penkovsky.
MI-6 was involved in several notorious schemes, such as Operation Ajax (Iran) and the ouster of Patrice Lumumba (Congo) and Jeddi Kagan (Guyana).
