United States measure to counter terrorism through the National Counterterrorism Centre (NCTC)

To combat terrorism at home and abroad by analyzing the threat, sharing information, and integrating all instruments of national power to ensure unity of effort.

--Create a Culture of Sharing Counterterrorism Knowledge and Expertise
*Discover, capture, share, and effectively exploit knowledge, expertise, and information within NCTC and across the counterterrorism community
*Develop integrated information technology systems that enable collaboration and information sharing within NCTC and across the counterterrorism community
*Establish policies, processes, and programs that encourage and reward collaboration, learning, and sharing.

Measures used

--One of NCTC’s measure used is through the 2010 Counterterrorism Calendar. The calendar has two versions which are the Online Multimedia Version and the Daily Planner Printable Version. The purpose of the NCTC’s Counterterrorism Calendar is to provide information on known terrorist groups, individual terrorists, and technical information on topics such as biological and chemical threats so that the general publis has the knowledge on how to deal with terrorist attack situations.

--Secondly, NCTC also uses The Interagency Threat Assessment and Coordination Group (ITACG) Intelligence Guide for First Responders as a measure to deal with terrorism. It is designed to assist state, local, tribal law enforcement, firefighting, homeland security, and appropriate private sector personnel in accessing and understanding Federal counterterrorism, homeland security, and weapons of mass destruction intelligence reporting. Most of the information contained in the guide was compiled, derived, and adapted from existing Intelligence Community and open source references.

The ITACG consists of state, local, and tribal first responders and federal intelligence analysts from the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, working at the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) to enhance the sharing of federal counterterrorism, homeland security, and weapons of mass destruction information with state, local, and tribal consumers of intelligence.
