Director of CTIIC Discusses Current Threat Environment

The chapter welcomed Erin Joe, senior FBI cyber professional and director for the Cyber Threat Intelligence Integration Center (CTIIC). "I flew all the way out here to speak with you for 30 minutes because I believe in what you're doing." Joe noted that AFCEA's ethical exchange of information across platforms is outstanding. The CTIIC serves the federal community, the intelligence community, the cyber community and the White House. Primarily, the CTIIC has the greatest level of day-to-day interaction with the National Security Council. They are in place to field questions and get answers for what's going on in the cyber world, particularly as it pertains to the current threat environment. The center looks across the threat landscape and puts it all together to give context to the threat. "Providing a single threat picture is our job. We're building awareness, integrating analysis and identifying opportunities." Joe explained that there is nothing more satisfying than crushing the enemy when they've done harm to the nation. The news brings to light the many attacks our country faces. There have been major cyber attacks in San Diego, Atlanta and Texas. "Regardless of who's behind it, it's still a threat to our national security." So, what should we do? "We have to demonstrate national power to force the enemy to change." Joe closed by saying that one of the best ways to take action is to watch what we click on. "We click on things we shouldn't, which is exactly what our adversaries are counting on and what they leverage the most."
