Membership Helps To Support the National Cryptologic Foundation's Mission & Vision
Vision: Influencing the cryptologic future by sharing our educational resources, stimulating new knowledge, and commemorating our heritage.
Mission: Educate - Stimulate - Commemorate
Educate the public, especially the nation’s brightest young minds. As a nationally reputed provider of assured quality cyber education resources focused on K-20 cohorts, our efforts help reduce cyber workforce deficits and current skills shortfalls, thereby promoting cyber professions as a fulfilling career choice.
Stimulate public engagement by serving as a venue for robust proactive dialogue on issues of cyber policy, technology, and privacy. As a bridge between government and entrepreneurs, promote innovation to solve our cryptologic challenges. Finally, inspire young students to explore cryptology and other STEM fields of study.
Commemorate all “those who serve in silence” in the cryptologic mission with valor and distinction, and whose contributions help enhance and preserve our way of life.
