The Deputy Director General of the Security Service (DDG) is the second most senior officer of the Service, better known as MI5.[1]

Five of the Security Service's seven branches report to the Deputy Director General, including those responsible for domestic and international terrorism.[2]

At times, MI5 has had more than one Deputy Director General. According to Michael Smith, this was the case in the mid-1990s until 1996.[3] One of these posts was known as (DDG) (Operations).[4]
