17.) Cryptanalysis , NSA, Fort George G. Meade, MD

Cryptanalysis is the analytic investigation of an information system with the goal of illuminating hidden aspects of that system. It encompasses any systematic analysis aimed at discovering features in, understanding aspects of, or recovering hidden parameters from an information system.

Cryptanalysis is one of the core technical disciplines necessary for the National Security Agency (NSA) to accomplish its mission and provide critical intelligence to the nation's leaders, and the need for Cryptanalysts will remain constant in our ever-changing global environment.

EDUCATION THAT IS ONGOING

Extensive in-house classroom and on-the-job training is offered to both new hires and experienced employees as part of their continuing career development. Applicants for Cryptanalysis are placed in the Cryptanalysis Development Program (CADP), which is designed to produce professional Cryptanalysts. CADP participants attend formal classes, receive technical training from experienced Cryptanalysts, and rotate to various job assignments throughout NSA. Job-related courses at local universities and through private industry are funded; employees may also qualify for programs that provide for part-time or full-time college study while continuing to receive a full salary.

WHERE THE FUTURE MAY LEAD

Cryptanalysts have a multitude of choices as they progress through their career. The flexibility of NSA allows Cryptanalysts to stay indefinitely within the Cryptanalysis career field, or branch out into other skill fields for which they may qualify. With ongoing training and experience, the Cryptanalyst can progress to the highest levels of NSA employment in either managerial or technical positions.

Qualifications:

Cryptanalysts utilize Mathematics, Computer Programming, Engineering, and language skills in addition to new technologies and creativity to solve tomorrow's problems today. NSA is looking for people who are intelligent and imaginative, and who can contribute original ideas toward the solution of complex challenges. Cryptanalysts must communicate clearly, concentrate long and hard on difficult problems, and avoid discouragement if success is elusive. And although skills such as computer programming proficiency are helpful, no specific major is targeted for Cryptanalysis. NSA hires people with both technical and non-technical degrees, ranging from Mathematics to Music, Engineering to History, and Computer Science to Chemistry.

*** The Army had a vast scrap yard in the middle of a desert. The IG Office performed an inspection and gave the following write-up: “Improper Security. Someone can easily steal from this area.”

So, the Army created positions for four MPs to guard the facility night and day.

The IG re-inspected, and gave the following write-up: “Improper procedures. There are no written instructions for the MPs to do their job.”

So, the Army created a planning section, and staffed it with two NCOs, one to write the instructions, and one to do time-studies.

The IG re-inspected and gave the following write-up: “There are no procedures in place to ensure the MPs are performing their duties correctly.”

The Army responded by creating a Total Quality Management section and staffed it with two NCOs, one to do studies and perform inspections and the other to write and file reports.

The IG re-inspected and gave the following write-up: “Insufficient supervision. There is no definable chain-of-command.”

So, the Army created an administrative section, and staffed it with an officer as OIC, a senior NCO as NCOIC, and two enlisted administrative specialists.

The IG re-inspected, and concluded: “This operation has met the requirements of the regulations. However, the command has been in operation for only one year and is already $18,000 over budget. The command must streamline operations and cut back on unnecessary staffing positions.”

So, the OIC eliminated the four MP positions.
