Page 01 of 18: About the ODNI Cyber Intelligence Study


Welcome to the Cyber Intelligence Tradecraft Survey. This survey is part of a cyber intelligence study sponsored by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and conducted by the Carnegie Mellon University Software Engineering Institute. The goal of this study is to capture the state of cyber intelligence practice in the United States, highlighting best practices and areas for improvement across all critical infrastructure sectors. We will publish our findings at the conclusion of the study. This survey is open to U.S.-owned organizations only.

The survey takes around 15 to 30 minutes to complete.

Is your organization's cyber intelligence team interested in participating in an in-person interview?

As part of this cyber intelligence study, we are also conducting in-person interviews with teams at U.S.-owned organizations. Interview participants receive a private comparative analysis of their organization's own cyber intelligence practices. If your organization's cyber intelligence team is interested in participating in an in-person interview, please contact us at
