FBI Executive Erin Joe Named CTIIC Director

Erin Joe, a senior executive for cyber operations at the FBI, was named director at the Cyber Threat Intelligence Integration Center.

Joe, who will replace Tonya Ugoretz, brings more than two decades of operations and intelligence experience in criminal and national security initiatives to the role, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence said Wednesday.

Prior to her appointment, Joe performed leadership responsibilities in four divisions and three offices within the FBI and managed the agency's strategies against cyber threats.

“Erin’s background, experience, and wealth of knowledge make her a great addition to our leadership team,” said Daniel Coats, the director of national intelligence.

The CTIIC assists with the dissemination of threat-related information to defense, incident response, intelligence and law enforcement sectors and facilitates planning among multiple agencies to address potential cyber attacks.
