According to the newspaper, US homeland security adviser Lisa Monaco is set to open the Cyber Threat Intelligence Integration Center later on Tuesday at the Wilson Center think tank in Washington.
"It will help ensure that we have the same integrated, all-tools approach to the cyberthreat that we have developed to combat terrorism," Monaco was quoted as saying in an interview ahead of her keynote speech.
Critics, however, claim many other organizations, like the Department of Homeland Security, FBI and NSA, have the cybersecurity capabilities and are already integrating intelligence in this field.
"We should not be creating more organizations and bureaucracy. We need to be forcing the existing organizations to become effective — hold them accountable," former director of the Joint Interagency Cyber Task Force and private sector expert Melissa Hathaway was quoted as saying by the newspaper.
In January, the US president announced a public-private sector data-sharing legislative proposal to combat the evolving threats of cyberattacks and identity theft.
In the latest cyberattack last week, the personal data of as many as 80 million customers and employees of insurance provider Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield are feared to have been stolen.
A number of US institutions, such as financial giant JP Morgan, the US State Department and Sony Entertainment have fallen victim to hackers over the course of 2014.
