The Cyber Threat Intelligence Integration Center (CTIIC) is the newest of four multiagency centers under the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) integrating intelligence about threats to US national interests. The DNI established CTIIC in 2015, pursuant to a Presidential Memorandum, to produce coordinated IC analysis of foreign cyber threats to US national interests, ensure the information is shared among the federal cyber community, and support the work of operators, analysts, and policymakers with timely intelligence about significant cyber threats and threat actors.


The Presidential Memorandum outlined five responsibilities for the Center:

  1. Provide integrated all-source analysis of intelligence related to foreign cyber threats or to cyber incidents affecting US national interests.
  2. Support federal cyber centers by providing access to intelligence necessary to carry out their respective missions.
  3. Oversee development and implementation of intelligence-sharing capabilities to enhance shared situational awareness of intelligence related to foreign cyber threats and incidents.
  4. Ensure that indicators of malicious cyber activity and, as appropriate, related threat reporting contained in intelligence channels are downgraded to the lowest classification possible for distribution to both US Government and US private sector entities.
  5. Facilitate and support interagency efforts to develop and implement coordinated plans to counter foreign cyber threats to US national interests using all instruments of national power, including diplomatic, economic, military, intelligence, homeland security, and law enforcement activities.
