Intelligence Protection Organization of Army of the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution (Persian: سازمان حفاظت اطلاعات سپاه پاسداران انقلاب اسلامی‎‎) is an Iranian intelligence agency within the Army of the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution (IRGC) and part of Council for Intelligence Coordination.[1]

The agency split from Intelligence Organization of IRGC in 1984, and was mainly a military intelligence unit. In 1991, the agency was restructured as an independent organization reporting to the Supreme Leader of Iran, mainly tasked with IRGC personnel surveillance and combating espionage inside Army of the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution.[2]
