  • Note that this article overstates the role of the FBI a bit. The Bureau will lead threat response (basically law enforcement), but DHS and the CTIIC are peers to the FBI in this process. DHS will lead asset response (basically helping the victim respond to and recover from the incident) and the CTIIC will lead intelligence support activities.
