KRYPTOS has since expanded to all Second Parties with chapters at GCHQ, CSE and DSD, which has members from GCSB as well. (U//FOUO) KRYPTOS schedules monthly technical talks in the Friedman Auditorium. KRYPTOS sponsors several activities to recognize cryptanalytic excellence: Cryptanalytic Literature Competition, Cryptanalytic Talk Competition, Norman Roberts Award to recognize outstanding junior analysts, Peter Jenks Community Service Award, and selection of Distinguished Members from the retired cryptanalytic community. These awards are presented at an annual fall luncheon. (U//FOUO) Although NSA's KRYPTOS has an elected council of 8 members from the community, all of these KRYPTOS activities would not be possible without volunteers from the membership. Of approximately 250 members, 25% have signed up as volunteers. SERIES: (U) NSA's Learned Organizations 1. A Look at NSA's Learned Organizations 2. The KRYPTOS Society 3.
