Cyber Security

The Future Starts in Augusta

The Augusta Region has long been home to tech- and cyber-related companies such as Unisys, ADP, and Raytheon.  Additionally, Augusta is home to the US Cyber Command at Fort Gordon and the newly completed Georgia Cyber Innovation and Training Center.

Other cyber-focused businesses and top cybersecurity workers are taking advantage of the expanding field and moving their headquarters and other branches to the Augusta Region.

The $100 million Georgia Cyber Innovation and Training Center is the single largest investment in a cybersecurity facility by a state government to date.  Located on the Nathan Deal Campus for Innovation, the center is a unique public/private partnership invloving academia, state and federal government, law enforcement, the U.S Army and the private sector.

Augusta is becoming a major hub for cybersecurity in the U.S., thanks to:

  • the Pentagon’s 2013 announcement that the U.S. Army Cyber Command would relocate from Fort Meade in Maryland to Fort Gordon in Augusta
  • Augusta University’s Cyber Institute
  • The $100 million Georgia Cyber Innovation and Training Center, the single largest investment in a cybersecurity facility by a state government to date, is a unique public/private partnership involving academia, state and federal government, law enforcement, the U.S. Army and the private sector.
Currently, there are more than 200,000 unfilled cybersecurity jobs nationwide.

The Cyber Institute, along with the Georgia Cyber Innovation and Training Center, will be working to fill those jobs, building a world-class workforce by improving Georgia’s cybersecurity education, training and research infrastructure.
