DTI also houses NCTCs screening mission, often known as Kingfisher, which supports interagency partners by vetting their applicants against classified data repositories. Our workflows are many and complex such that collaboration is an essential aspect of life. DTIs mission statement declares, Discover, enhance, and share identity intelligence that advances the most complete and accurate identity picture to our partners in supporting terrorism analysis and successful screening activities that ultimately helps prevent terrorist plans and operations against US interests.
NCTC/DTI is composed of five groups, one of which is the Screening and Vetting Group (SVG) which manages NCTCs screening support mission and the successful Kingfisher Expansion program. SVG seeks a highly motivated and innovative officer to serve as an analyst in its Communications Exploitation Branch (CExB), which reviews foreign visitor applications against derogatory information through sophisticated, in-depth analysis, utilizing multiple data sets and tools. CExB sends some 15 to 20 hits a week to partner agencies as lead information for adjudications, investigations, intelligence collection, and other action. These discoveries are folded into Kingfisher Expansion, which went live in June 2013 and provides the US screening partners with a single CT check on applications. CExB primarily supports reviews of visa applicants, applicants from visa waiver countries who use the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA), and refugee applicants. This position provides a great opportunity to participate in the Kingfisher Expansion program which is one of the top priorities for the Director of NCTC, while developing skills as a targeting analyst.
