According to Reuters citing a story in the The Washington Post, the U.S. government is creating a new agency to monitor cybersecurity threats, which will be called “The Cyber Threat Intelligence Integration Center (CTIIC)
According to the story the CTIIC will be an “intelligence center that will ‘connect the dots’ between various cyber threats to the nation so that relevant departments and agencies such as the Department of Homeland Security, the FBI and the CIA so they are aware of these threats in as close to real time as possible.
The CTIIC will aim for “seamless intelligence flows among centers, including those responsible for sharing with the private sector.”
On the domain name front, CTIIC.com was registered in November of 2014 and is owned by someone in China.
The domain names; TheCyberThreatIntelligenceIntegrationCenter.com; CyberThreatIntelligenceIntegrationCenter.com and CyberThreatIntelligenceCenter.com are available, but I personally would stay far away from registering any of those.
I am no expert in these things, but it seems to me that young agile hackers will always beat slow rigid government agencies and corporations. It won’t even be close. What it means is that no information can remain secret. What that means I don’t know, but it sure seems important. Like it could shake the internet to it’s foundations.
