2021 NCF-CCEI Founders' Group Event


On 10 November 2021, the NCF hosted a special event in Baltimore, MD for the NCF-CCEI Founders' Group. The event focused on our Education Program and highlighted some of our most recent accomplishments. The program also gave the Foundation an opportunity to thank this dedicated group of donors who have supported the campaign for the Cyber Center for Education and Innovation for many years. (Please click here to see a full list of the NCF Founders' Group members.)

One highlight of the evening's program was when General Paul M. Nakasone, Commander, U.S. Cyber Command, Director NSA/Chief, CSS presented the NCF with the Public Service Medallion for 25 years of support to the Museum. GEN Nakasone said the NCF-NSA Progress Through Partnership efforts will boost NSA’s efforts to recruit talent and engage with the public on cybersecurity.


The program was interactive and engaging - allowing our distinguished guests to experience some of our Education Program's most recent successes - the Escape Room and the online Cyber Game, and to see the recently published Outsmart Cyberthreats data care booklet. Our guests also learned about the many ideas we have for potential programs and opportunities to further our Education Program's reach and success.
