US National Intelligence Cyber Threats Strategy 2019

The National Intelligence Strategy (NIS) provides the Intelligence Community (IC) with strategic direction from the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) for the next four years. The strategic environment is changing rapidly, and the United States faces an increasingly complex and uncertain world in which threats are becoming ever more diverse and interconnected. 
 
Despite growing awareness of cyber threats and improving cyber defenses, nearly all information, communication networks, and systems will be at risk for years to come. 
 
US adversaries are becoming more adept at using cyberspace capabilities to threaten interests and advance their own strategic and economic objectives. Cyber threats will pose an increasing risk to public health, safety, and prosperity as information technologies are integrated into critical infrastructure, vital national networks, and consumer devices. 
 
Here’s how the United States Intelligence Community will deal with Cyber Threats:
Despite growing awareness of cyber threats and improving cyber defenses, nearly all information, communication networks, and systems will be at risk for years to come. The US adversaries are becoming more adept at using cyberspace capabilities to threaten our interests and advance their own strategic and economic objectives. 
 
Cyber threats will pose an increasing risk to public health, safety, and prosperity as information technologies are integrated into critical infrastructure, vital national networks, and consumer devices. 
 
The IC must continue to grow its intelligence capabilities to meet these evolving cyber threats as a part of a comprehensive cyber posture positioning the Nation for strategic and tactical response. In order to “Detect and understand cyber threats from state and non-state actors engaged in malicious cyber activity to inform and enable national security decision making, cybersecurity, and the full range of response activities” the IC will:
 
• Increase our awareness and understanding of adversaries’ use of cyber operations, including leadership plans, intentions, capabilities, and operations, to inform decisions and enable action.
• Expand tailored production and appropriate dissemination and release of actionable cyber threat intelligence to support the defense of vital information networks and critical infrastructure.
• Expand our ability to enable diplomatic, information, military, economic, financial, intelligence, and law enforcement plans and operations to deter and counter malicious cyber actors and activities.
 
The national strategy further defines Cyber Threat Intelligence as: 
Cyber threat intelligence is the collection, processing, analysis, and dissemination of information from all sources of intelligence on foreign actors’ cyber programs, intentions, capabilities, research and development, tactics, targets, operational activities and indicators, and their impact or potential effects on US national security interests. 
 
Cyber threat intelligence also includes information on cyber threat actor information systems, infrastructure, and data; and network characterisation, or insight into the components, structures, use, and vulnerabilities of foreign cyber program information systems.
