The National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) leads our nation's effort to combat terrorism at home and abroad by analyzing the threat, sharing that information with our partners, and integrating all instruments of national power to ensure unity of effort.
The Center serves as the primary organization in the United States Government (USG) for analyzing and integrating all intelligence possessed or acquired by the USG pertaining to terrorism and counterterrorism, and its Director serves as the Counterterrorism Mission Manager.
NCTC also serves as the central and shared knowledge bank on known and suspected terrorists and international terrorist groups, as well as their goals, strategies, capabilities, and networks of contacts and support. In addition, NCTC conducts strategic operational planning for counterterrorism activities, coordinating and integrating the efforts of departments and agencies across the Federal Government.
Major Duties and Responsibilities (MDRs)
The Operational Analysis Branch (OAB) Identity Intelligence Analyst will target, resolve, and exploit known or suspected terrorist (KST) identities within a fast-paced team environment using NCTC's unique access to foreign and domestic data.
OAB coordinates with NCTC and community partners to aggregate identity-centric data on terrorist identities that are part of high profile threat streams as well as those that require action based on operational considerations.
OAB then develops robust profiles on those terrorist identities within the Terrorist Identities Datamart Environment (TIDE), the USG's authoritative database on KSTs, to ensure the United States can effectively identify them.
Perform in-depth, all-source research and analysis for specifically defined targets; resolve target identities through the integration of biographic, biometric, contextual and behavioral information; reveal and aggregate identity attributes for future analytic, screening, and watchlisting purposes; use both traditional and non-traditional information sources.
Present findings as appropriate via written products, graphic presentations or oral briefings.
Respond to breaking events, crises, and requests for information on imminent threats by incorporating policies, strategies, tactics, techniques, procedures and mechanisms to reveal the true identity of individuals, develop comprehensive summaries of subjects' USG footprints, and evaluate for intelligence gaps.

Provide guidance to junior Identity Intelligence Analysts on all-source analytic tradecraft and methodological issues pertaining to terrorist identities intelligence, and identity resolution in the context of current CT threat reporting.
