Tell us about your organization.
Established in 1996, the National Cryptologic Museum Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting the mission and operations of the National Cryptologic Museum at Fort Meade, Maryland. The NCMF’s mission is to:

  • Educate the public about the role of cryptology, signals intelligence and cybersecurity in our nation’s defense;
  • Commemorate the accomplishments, contributions and sacrifices of its unsung military and civilian heroes; and
  • Stimulate the minds of generations to come about the wonders of cryptology and cybersecurity and their related disciplines.

The museum currently receives more than 60,000 visitors annually, many of whom are school-aged children. The NCMF is now engaged in the “quiet” planning phase of a major fund raising campaign to capitalize a new facility with a greatly expanded physical presence and mission focus: The Cyber Center for Education & Innovation, Home of the National Cryptologic Museum (CCEI). The new CCEI is envisioned as an integrated multi-purpose facility serving public and private stakeholders with the goals of strengthening our nation’s cybersecurity and defending critical infrastructure. To accomplish these goals, the CCEI will bring together government, industry and academia to promote the sharing of insight, knowledge and resources.

How will the CyberMaryland conference help you engage cyber industry, government and academic leaders?
At CyberMaryland, NCMF has the opportunity to engage with attendees who can help advance the strategic goals related to the CCEI development effort.

What is your role at this year’s event? What expectations do you have? NCMF and University of Maryland University College (UMUC) are pleased to serve as cosponsors of CyberMaryland’s Education track. NCMF and UMUC have recently formed a partnership tasked with development and coordination of the CCEI’s cybersecurity-oriented educational outreach programs. These programs will emphasize workforce development and operational training requirements as defined by industry, government and academia. Therefore, it is especially valuable to begin piloting the CCEI’s educational outreach programs, even though the actual facility is not complete, by helping develop the Thought Leadership track at CyberMaryland.

University of Maryland University College (UMUC) was established in 1947. Its educational mission is to serve adult students, who often must juggle full-time jobs, families and military service. The university has offered academic programs to active duty military members overseas since 1949 in Europe, the 1950s in Asia and Africa, and the 1970s in the Middle East. UMUC was a trailblazer in developing fully online academic programs in the 1990s. Last year, UMUC had a worldwide student population exceeding 82,000, placing it among the largest universities in the nation. The main campus is located in Adelphi, Maryland, but the university also has secondary administrative centers in Kaiserslautern, Germany, and Tokyo, Japan.

UMUC offers more than 90 degrees and certificates through the doctoral level in both online and face-to-face formats. Its offerings include bachelor’s degrees in computer science, cybersecurity management & policy, investigative forensics, computers & network security, software development & security, and master’s degrees in cybersecurity, cybersecurity management & policy, and digital forensics & cyber investigation. UMUC is a NSA/DHS National Center of Excellence for Information Assurance and Cyber Defense Education and a DC3 National Center of Digital Forensic Academic Excellence.

How will the CyberMaryland conference help you engage cyber industry, government and academic leaders?
Given the spectrum of organizations and individuals it brings together, CyberMaryland offers an excellent venue for networking, sharing information about UMUC’s cyber degrees and certificates, and announcing significant new initiatives in cybersecurity.

What is your role at this year’s event? What expectations do you have?
At UMUC, I support the university’s external relationships in the area of cybersecurity, so I’m excited to be able to announce a new relationship with the National Cryptologic Museum Foundation.

The Foundation has formed a partnership with UMUC to develop a program of educational outreach on cybersecurity issues. In its role within the partnership, UMUC is the agent of the University System of Maryland to develop and coordinate the partnership’s education-focused programmatic activities. These will contribute to the many efforts underway to educate the public about cybersecurity issues, build the STEM pipeline, promote best practices, and enhance operational training and workforce development. In fulfilling its role within the partnership, UMUC will leverage the resources of institutions both within and outside of the University System as well as non-profits and various corporate entities.

As a first installment on the partnership’s educational outreach, the Foundation and UMUC are shaping the cyber education track at CyberMaryland as Thought Leadership co-sponsors. For those interested in the partnership and its goals, UMUC and the Foundation will be distributing a white paper at each of these sessions.

This outreach initiative is part of a larger project of the Foundation to build a new multi-purpose facility, the Cyber Center for Education and Innovation – Home of the National Cryptologic Museum. UMUC joined the “Founders Group,” a public/private partnership to build the new facility, on behalf of the University System of Maryland.

Kenneth O. McCreedy

Maryland Department of Commerce

Senior Director, Cybersecurity and Aerospace

Tell us about your organization.
The Maryland Department of Commerce works to grow cybersecurity businesses in Maryland by helping them address challenges they are facing and advocating for them in the government. The Department of Commerce also focuses on marketing the strength of Maryland companies in this particularly critical sector because of the intellectual capital that has formed here over the past three decades.

How will the CyberMaryland conference help you engage cyber industry, government and academic leaders?
CyberMaryland helps us showcase Maryland's powerful array of capabilities across the cybersecurity industry. It also helps us discuss issues relevant to the growth of the industry, including workforce development and investment.

What is your role at this year’s event? What expectations do you have?
The Department of Commerce is sponsoring this year's track dealing with workforce development. This is a critical area because the shortage of qualified workers is hampering the growth that is possible in cybersecurity. We hope to use this forum to seek solutions to increase the availability and qualifications of cybersecurity professionals, to retain the workforce in the state, and to build the capabilities of our higher education institutions to deliver the workforce of the future.
