You are invited to attend a free webinar presented via a collaboration of the National Cryptologic Foundation, CERIAS (Purdue University), CTE Educators, and Nepris. Learn more below and click the link at the end of the page to register for this free webinar.

Industry associations, foundations, and companies alike have now come to realize that strong industry-to-education outreach programs are vital to the continuity, growth, and success of their sectors. Industry leaders across the globe are implementing community engagement programs that maximize employee and partner engagement, increase overall reach, and develop their future workforce, while education leaders search for ways to connect students to careers.

Hear from those ahead of the curve with their industry engagement programs, and see how they found success leveraging partnerships, out-of-the-box thinking, and technologies to scale virtual, education outreach programs with students and schools. Virtual tours and work-based learning experiences - now done fully virtual - are engaging remote employees and industry partners with students everywhere, bridging the gap between industry and education.

Learn best practices, lessons learned, and how to implement a virtual, skills-based volunteering program that engages employees and industry partners, is easy for education collaborators, and prepares the next-gen workforce to be both college- and career-ready.

About Us

The NCF directly supports the National Cryptologic Museum (NCM), the first public museum in the U.S. Intelligence Community. We think you will agree it is truly a "museum like no other."

Located adjacent to the National Security Agency (NSA) in Maryland, the NCM houses a priceless collection of artifacts that represent our Nation's history in code making and code breaking, as well as a world class library of cryptologic media. The NCF acquires the best artifacts for the NCM and supports new educational and interactive exhibits.

Further, the NCF's Vision is to Influence the cryptologic future by sharing our educational resources, stimulating new knowledge, and commemorating our heritage.

The Foundation provides exceptional cryptologic programs throughout the year, encourages young minds to explore cryptology and cyber education and careers,  hosts educational, cryptology-related exhibits at various community events, and honors the people— past, present, and future—whose contributions to our national security protect and make possible our way of life.

As part of the Foundation's partnership with NSA to build the Cyber Center for Education and Innovation - Home of the National Cryptologic Museum (CCEI-NCM), the NCF also serves as a leader in the field of cybersecurity - striving to provide the best in educational resources and programs.

The NCF and NCM share a joint three-fold mission to Educate, Stimulate, and Commemorate. Learn more about our MISSION.
