Operational Support

Since 2014, MITRE has operated the National Institute of Standards and Technology's (NIST's) National Cybersecurity FFRDC (NCF)—the nation's first and only FFRDC dedicated to cybersecurity and the advancement of secure technologies.

Each NCCoE project is led by a NIST Principal Investigator who provides oversight of the development process and manages a team of subject matter experts, including the NCF expertise. Through the NCCoE, government, industry, and academia work together to address the most pressing cybersecurity challenges of our nation's business infrastructure.
