Friends and Family of the NCC,
2022 was a remarkable year for the National Cybersecurity Center. In addition to the ongoing programming, education and collaborative partnerships we’ve advanced, NCC has also taken a step back to assess how we best communicate our work to the public. Through the hard work of our dedicated staff and insightful Board of Directors, we have had the opportunity to evaluate our message and how it is delivered. Building on the launch of our new website, I am now pleased to announce the release of our NCC Vision Video, which includes remarks from US Senator from Colorado John Hickenlooper, Colorado Springs Mayor John Suthers, UCCS Chancellor Venkat Reddy, and El Pomar Foundation President and CEO Kyle Hybl. In addition, I invite you to read my latest blog post where I share even more about the exciting future of our organization as we build a collaborative, operational, and interdisciplinary model for cybersecurity engagement that transforms our nation’s ability to detect and deter threats. You can find both the video and blog here: https://cyber-center.org/ncc-overview-blog/.
Throughout these new materials, you can learn more about the three fundamental pillars of the NCC: 1) to lead through thought leadership and community activation; 2) to collaborate through operational readiness and interdisciplinary collaboration (in Space); and 3) to educate by means of training, certification, and workforce development. The growing fear of cybercrime must be met with cybersecurity education and activism, and the NCC is meeting that challenge with the collaboration of our community anchored in these pillars.
As we close out the year, I want to express my hearty gratitude for the collaboration among friends, family, partners, and especially our NCC board of directors and hard-working staff. Together in the year ahead, we will continue to advance our vision and mission, and I thank you for the opportunity to continue to serve as CEO in this moment of time where our work is needed more than ever.
Cheers to 2023 and from all of us at the NCC, have a safe and merry holiday season!
Harry Raduege, NCC President and CEO
