In the Cold War, it was important for the United States to be able to decode information.
VENONA helped officials learn about the espionage targets and tradecraft and Americans who were passing on details to the Soviet Union, according to a release from the Cold War Museum.
National Security Agency (NSA) Historian David Hatch is giving a presentation about the counterintelligence initiative.
Hatch previously served as an analyst, supervisor and staff officer for NSA. He received his masters from Indiana University Bloomington and doctorate from American University in Washington, D.C.
