NSA Teams With National Cryptologic Foundation to Promote Cyberecurity Awareness
National Security Agency

The National Security Agency (NSA) has launched a partnership with the National Cryptologic Foundation to encourage the public and private sector to collaborate on cybersecurity and national security. NCF marks its silver founding anniversary in 2021.

The said effort will be made through the agency's external engagement strategy and the foundation's continued initiatives to expand public sector awareness, NSA said Friday.

The agency cited a need to increase cybersecurity awareness across academia, government, private industry and the general public.

The partnership also aims to develop nationwide education programs for boosting talent pipelines in cyber, science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields to meet workforce demands. A platform for facilitating cybersecurity discussions and technical exchanges is also planned to address gaps in the cyber landscape.

In addition, NSA and NCF look to inform the public about the value of cryptology to the U.S. and how it contributed to the protection and preservation of national security and the American culture.
