President Barack Obama in December blamed North Korea for the Sony hack, one of many attacks targeting US businesses. A new agency, set to be announced Tuesday, will oversee the sharing of intelligence on cyberthreats. Getty Images Cyberterrorism now has the level of attention within the Obama administration as its real-world counterpart. The US government is set to announce Tuesday the creation of a new agency, called the Cyber Threat Intelligence Integration Center, that will focus on combating virtual threats like massive hacking operations and attacks on US infrastructure, according to a report from The Washington Post. The agency will be modeled after the National Terrorism Center, which was developed following the September 11, 2001 attacks as a means to fuse together intelligence from multiple departments, long thought to be a critical shortcoming. With the new agency, the government will now be able to gather and share information on cyberthreats across the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the National Security Agency and the Central Intelligence Agency, among other agencies.
