“We currently have more than 400 employees providing advanced analytics and information assurance mission support in the Fort Gordon/Augusta market and we are continuing to grow,” said Peder Jungck, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems’ Intelligence Solutions business. “The Georgia Cyber Center will help us expand our footprint in the region, while providing us with a new hub to attract the next generation of cloud, artificial intelligence, and cybersecurity experts our nation needs.”

The Center is the single largest investment in a cybersecurity facility by a state government to date. It is home to several cybersecurity certificate, undergraduate- and graduate-level programs offered by Augusta University and Augusta Technical College. The facility also hosts the Georgia Cyber Range, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation’s Cyber Crime Unit, and a number of innovation focused incubation and accelerator programs offered by theClubhou.se, an Augusta technology non-profit. The diversity of the Center’s tenants reflects an unprecedented partnership among academia, state and federal government, law enforcement, the U.S. Army and the private sector.

“Cybersecurity is a shared responsibility, and we applaud Georgia’s commitment to attracting, training, and growing our nation’s cybersecurity workforce,” said Mark Keeler, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems’ Integrated Defense Solutions business. “Sharing a campus with students creates tremendous opportunities for collaboration, mentoring, and internships that you will not find anywhere else.”
