Tonya Ugoretz, a senior intelligence analyst at FBI, has been named director of the cyber threat intelligence integration center within the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.
ODNI said Jan. 7 Maurice Bland, formerly assistant deputy director for cyber at the National Security Agency, will serve as deputy director of CTIIC; and Thomas Donahue, a 25-year senior intelligence service member at CIA, will be research director.
“CTIIC will lead integrated community analysis of our cyber adversaries and support interagency efforts to develop whole-of-government opportunities against cyber threats,” said Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.
“It will build understanding of cyber threats to inform government-wide decision-making.”
President Barack Obama directed ODNI to set up CTIIC through a memorandum signed in February 2015.
The center will work to coordinate and analyze intelligence on local and international cyber threats and help the federal government understand and counter such network vulnerabilities.
