The Syndicate is an extremley powerful international terrorist organization, which was a former proposed project to perform missions without an oversight, making the British Prime Minister an executioner without accountability. Atlee has created it within the MI6 without any permission, and Solomon Lane, an MI6 agent, has hijacked the project from Atlee and went rogue, turning against him and the MI6.
This organization is consisted of numerous government agents who betrayed their homeland and faked their deaths, all of them went rogue, joined in the Syndicate with Lane as the leader while those operatives became Lane's assassins and agents for the Syndicate, and has only one goal: Kill Ethan Hunt, his team and destroy the ultra-secret agency, IMF, including Ilsa Faust, an undercover MI6 agent who had her task to infiltrate the organization and bring it down from the inside, and to prevent them from creating a new world order of terrorist acts and unstoppable accidents.

Rogue Nation Edit
Ethan Hunt was determined that he could prove the existence of the Syndicate. As he attempts to being reported about it by an IMF substation to receive his orders, the Syndicate reveal their existence to Hunt, having infiltrated the station to subdue him. Hunt is rescued by a disavowed British agent Ilsa Faust, a Syndicate operative who offers no explanation for her actions. With their existence confirmed, Hunt begins following his only lead: a blond man in glasses who oversaw his capture, which is later revealed to be the organization's top leader; Solomon Lane.
Ilsa partners with Hunt and Benji Dunn to locate a file hidden by a Syndicate traitor on a high-security server used to regulate a Moroccan power station. Believing it to be a ledger containing the names of all Syndicate agents, the trio secure it before Ilsa betrays Hunt and Dunn. She returns to London, passing the file on to her handler,Attlee. However, Attlee discreetly erases the file, forcing Ilsa to return to the Syndicate and prove her loyalty to its leader, Solomon Lane, who Hunt knows as the man in the glasses.
Having betrayed one another so many times, they can no longer be certain of their own loyalty, question what to do next as they cannot be sure that Lane has not anticipated and moved to manipulate them. When Dunn and Ilsa are abducted by Lane's men, Hunt realizes that Lane will always have a plan to acquire the files, and that the only way to stop him is to force a confrontation with him. He agrees to Lane's ultimatum to abduct the British Prime Minister and use his voice print to unlock the file.
At a final stand, disturbed by this turn of events, Brandt contacts Hunley and reveals their location. CIA director Alan Hunley arrives at a charity auction to try and prevent Hunt from attacking the Prime Minister, and take him with Brandt and Atlee to a secure room. Having posed as Atlee, Hunt reveals himself and has the Prime Minister confirm the existence of the Syndicate: a top-secret project that sought to recruit all disavowed government agents to carry out clandestine missions; an initiative that the Prime Minister rejected as too extreme. When the real Attlee arrives, Hunt subdues him, and he admits that Lane hijacked the project for his own ends and went rogue, and that Atlee has been covering up its existence ever since. Atlee is arrested and is taken into custody.
Later, Stickell reveals that the file is not a ledger of all agents, but contains the locations and access codes for billions of dollars in untraceable funds that Lane has been desperate to get in order to keep it operational for decades. Hunt memorizes the data and destroys the file to force Lane to release Dunn and Ilsa in exchange for what he knows. He lures Lane out into the open and into a trap set up by Stickell and Brandt. Imprisoned in a bulletproof cell, he is gassed and taken into custody for his crimes and the Syndicate is dismantled for good.
