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.
