Experts available: $100 million center places Georgia at the forefront of cybersecurity research
The state of Georgia will enter bold new territory in cybersecurity research and workforce development with the opening of the Georgia Cyber Center on July 10.
Housed at Augusta University’s Riverfront Campus, the $100 million facility is the single largest investment in a cyber facility by a state government to date and home to a unique public/private collaboration among academia, state and federal government, law enforcement, the U.S. Army and the private sector. Spread across two buildings, the 332,000 square-foot space features a cutting-edge cyber range, a secure briefing area and an incubator and accelerator to foster innovation and entrepreneurship.
Cybersecurity experts from Georgia’s three National Centers of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense (CAE-CD) designated research universities—Augusta University, University of Georgia and Georgia Tech—are available for interviews to discuss the future of cybersecurity research and innovation in the state.
