Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a spy? In his bestselling memoir – I Was Never Here – Andrew provides a look behind the curtain of Canada’s Spy Service. In what Publisher’s weekly calls “…a surprisingly lighthearted look at a shadowy but vital government function” he reveals what the Canadian Security intelligence Service (CSIS) is, what it does and what it’s really like to work there.

Former Canadian Spy stories and training in Security and Intelligence

About Andrew

I've held many of these roles in an almost 20-year security career spanning the public and private sector; including serving for a decade with the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS). I am now a public speaker, author and consultant on issues of physical, national and cyber security. Drawing on lessons from my career; I want to lift the curtain on what Canada’s intelligence community does, the threats we face, and the challenges to come so we are all better prepared to protect ourselves, our communities, our companies and country

In I Was Never Here, Andrew Kirsch spills the secrets of what life as an intelligence officer is really like—and dispels a few myths along the way. With humour, honesty, and candour, Kirsch shares his on-the-ground experience (or as much of it as he’s allowed to) of becoming a member of CSIS: from his vetting and training, to his initial desk job as a policy analyst, to his rise up the ranks leading covert special operations missions. If you’ve ever wondered whether spies can have real dating lives, how they handle family responsibilities, or how they come up with cover stories, you’re in luck.
