Sith Intelligence Ranks

So, we know there's still a Minister of Intelligence who reports directly to the Dark Council, right? But what about the hierarchy of Intelligence? Is the title of "Keeper" done away with completely, or is it kept for the sake of tradition and serves as more of an organizer and figure head? Who picks up the things the Minister of Intelligence can't she gets too busy?

From what I've read of how a ministry works, you have:
1) A minister at is head
2) An "permanent" under-secretary/secretary
3) Chiefs and advisors
4) The usual rank-and-file

In the case of Intelligence, you'd have something like:
1) Minister of Intelligence
2) Keeper of Intelligence (Now done away-with, but what is it replaced with?)
3) Chief Intelligence advisors and scientists (perhaps Watchers?)
4) Ciphers, Minders, etc.

I would love to hear opinions on this, as it could be useful when deciding rank and it'd be incredibly helpful in writing. If anyone has any more knowledge on how a ministry works, feel free to post.

...And if there's already been a thread discussing this and I somehow missed it, please let me know and I'll take a look at it.

Technically Minister of Intelligence became Minister of Sith Intelligence at the end of SoR.  According to the Sith Intelligence codex entry, the only appreciable change from Imperial Intelligence to Sith Intelligence was in matters of oversight (i.e., appointing Lana Beniko, a Force-using Sith Lord to directly oversee the agency and report directly to the Dark Council.).  Presumably, the rank and organizational structure of the agency remained the same (which is how my guild RPs it, you can see here how we assign rank and assignments and such http://sithintelligence.enjin.com/forum/m/32715763/viewthread/24850616-personnel-roster ).

Talk about Throwback Thursday! After so much time I never expected a response!

Yeah, I imagine it would've stayed the same, though with more "sith interference" at every corner. More nonsense, more time spent justifying the goings-on of the whole business, etc.

That's pretty much how I interpreted it, that the only thing that really changed was a reduction in Intelligence's autonomy in regards to the Sith. As for ranks, I would say that Keeper has been replaced with the "Sith Intelligence Commander" - Cipher Nine - given that it was pretty much implied that Nine and Lana would be on equal footing in the new Intelligence. (Being Sith, of course, Lana would just be a little bit more equal, but you get the idea.)

Probably the same as what's been going on, but here's my interpretation of it from the Agent Storyline.

Dark Council Member (Was Darth Zhorrid, currently none)
Minister of Intelligence
Keeper
Watchers - Minders - Intelligence Operational Assets
Fixers - Ciphers - Station Heads
All other assets.
