cybersecurityThe White House plans to create a new government organization that would connect sets of cyber intelligence data and deliver threat information to federal agencies in real time, Reuters reported Tuesday.

Warren Strobel writes a White House senior official said the Cyber Threat Intelligence Integration Center will be established to manage “seamless intelligence flows among centers, including those responsible for sharing with the private sector.”

Lisa Monaco, assistant to the president for homeland security and counterterrorism, will formally announce the planned center during a speech Tuesday, according to Reuters.

The Wall Street Journal reports the cybersecurity organization could be formed within the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and reflects a federal strategy to strengthen defense against hackers.

President Barack Obama is scheduled to meet with technology industry executives on Friday to discuss public-private collaboration on cybersecurity, according to the story by WSJ reporter Damian Paletta.
