The Cyber Factor: How private sector investment is shaping Augusta
The region has long been home to Fort Gordon, Signal Corps and more recently US Cyber Command. Tech- and cyber-related private sector companies have been in residence for some time, as well. But with the new Georgia Cyber Innovation and Training Center, the increasing momentum of the cyber race and Augusta’s climbing rank as a top 10 cybersecurity hub in the country, more and more cyber-focused business and top cybersecurity workers are eyeing a move to the region.
This afternoon's guest speaker, Sarah Rees of the Georgia Cyber Center, will discuss the changes coming to the Augusta Region with the increasing private sector cyber investment.
