We build an understanding of foreign cyber threats to U.S. national interests to inform decisionmakers

CTIIC is the federal lead for intelligence support in response to significant cyber incidents, working—on behalf of the IC—to integrate analysis of threat trends and events, build situational awareness, and support interagency efforts to develop options for degrading or mitigating adversary threat capabilities.

Who We Are


The Challenge of Deterrence in Cyberspace

The Aspen Institute held a discussion on cyberattacks and how best to deter them. The panel included CTIIC's Director Erin Joe, CTIIC's founding director Tonya Ugoretz—and Dr. Milton Mueller.

Cyber Threat Framework

ODNI's Cyber Threat Framework enables consistent characterization and categorization of cyber threat events and the identification of trends or changes in cyber activities.

Quick Facts

CTIIC’s mission responsibilities are outlined in a February 2015 memo Presidential Memorandum that directed the DNI to establish CTIIC.

Cyber Threats to Elections: A Lexicon

Drawing on lessons learned from the 2016 elections, the IC created a Lexicon to better synchronize communications through the normalization of cyber terms.

How We Work


CTIIC integrates information from network defense, intelligence, and law enforcement communities; facilitates information sharing; leads community analysis of cyber threats; and supports interagency planning to develop whole-of-government approaches against cyber adversaries. The following three components carry out CTIIC’s mission:


Current Intelligence

Current Intelligence builds shared situational awareness of foreign cyber threats to US national interests by identifying significant cyber threat reporting and setting it in context for a broad readership across the IC and federal cyber community, including senior policymakers.

Analysis Integration

Analysis Integration leads community analysis of cyber threats or incidents and high-priority threat actors, setting their cyber activity in the broader context of their intent, motivations, and geopolitical considerations.

Threat Opportunity

Threat Opportunity supports and facilitates whole-of-government options in response to cyber threats to help ensure decision-makers receive potential courses of action that reflect all instruments of national power.
