Position description

Within the Directorate of Analysis (DA), incomplete and sometimes contradictory information is transformed into unique insights that inform US policy decisions. The DA helps provide timely, accurate and objective all-source intelligence analysis on national security and foreign policy issues to senior policymakers in the US Government. Learn more about the Directorate of Analysis at https://www.cia.gov/offices-of-cia/intelligence-analysis/ 

As a Cyber Threat Analyst for the CIA, you will conduct all-source analysis, digital forensics, and targeting to identify, monitor, assess, and counter the threat posed by foreign cyber actors against US information systems, critical infrastructure and cyber-related interests. You will support the President, the National Security Council, and other US policymakers with strategic assessments and provide tactical analysis and advice for operations. 

Cyber Threat Analysts apply their scientific and technical knowledge to solving complex intelligence problems, produce short-term and long-term written assessments, and brief US policymakers and the US cyber defense community. This work demands initiative, creativity, analytic skills, and technical expertise. 

You will also have the opportunity to maintain and broaden your professional ties throughout your career through academic study, collaboration with Intelligence Community peers, and attendance at professional meetings. 

Opportunities exist for foreign and domestic travel, language training, analytic tradecraft and management training, training to deepen substantive expertise, and assignments to other offices in the Agency and throughout the US Government.
