In February 2015, the Obama Administration established, via presidential memorandum, Establishment of the Cyber Threat Intelligence Integration Center, the Cyber Threat Intelligence Integration Center (CTIIC). The Center was to be established by the Director of National Intelligence (DNI).

Its purposes are to provide integrated analysis on foreign cybersecurity threats and incidents affecting national interests and to support relevant government entities, including the National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center (NCCIC) at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), as well as others at the Department of Defense (DOD) and Department of Justice (DOJ).

CTIIC publishes intelligence products that place current cyber threats in context and provide integrated IC assessments of an adversary's capabilities and motivations for using cyber means to achieve its strategic goals.

CTIIC has three sections focused, respectively, on Awareness, Analysis, and Opportunity: the Current Intelligence Section, Analysis Integration Section, and Threat Opportunity Section. It is staffed by ODNI personnel and detailees from throughout the federal cyber community.
