Assign KITs, KIQs, and/or intelligence requirements

  • Assign KITs, KIQs, and/or intelligence requirements - Pre-ATT&CK
    • Once generated, Key Intelligence Topics (KITs), Key Intelligence Questions (KIQs), and/or intelligence requirements are assigned to applicable agencies and/or personnel. For example, an adversary may decide nuclear energy requirements should be assigned to a specific organization based on their mission.12

Receive KITs/KIQs and determine requirements

  • Receive KITs/KIQs and determine requirements - Pre-ATT&CK
    • Applicable agencies and/or personnel receive intelligence requirements and evaluate them to determine sub-requirements related to topics, questions, or requirements. For example, an adversary's nuclear energy requirements may be further divided into nuclear facilities versus nuclear warhead capabilities.

Submit KITs, KIQs, and intelligence requirements
