About the IC SCC Program:

IC SCC’s mission is to coordinate the cybersecurity incident response for the intelligence community, the center’s director, Wally Coggins, recently told Federal News Radio. To improve its mission, the center wants to beef up its data-sharing capabilities, coordinate cybersecurity functions and conduct more life-like training, which feds say is often lacking.

The center achieves its mission through continuous two-way communication with the 17 intelligence agencies and their incident response centers, Coggins says. The IC SCC also works closely with other cybersecurity partners, including U.S. Cyber Command within the Defense Department and the National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center at the Department of Homeland Security.

“IC SCC facilitates accelerated detection and mitigation of cyberthreats across the IC by providing end-to-end security, situational awareness, and incident case management,” according to a document from the National Counterintelligence and Security Center within the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. “It maintains consolidated insight into IC networks and intelligence information systems and coordinates IC responses to cyberevents, incidents, outages, threats and technical vulnerabilities.”

Coggins notes that the cybersecurity threat environment is dynamic and always changing, “and we’re continuously assessing and evaluating our incident response plan.” He says that the IC SCC is focusing on three main areas this year.  “Automated data sharing, greater coordination and more realistic training for cyberincidents can help intelligence agencies respond better, an IC official says.”
