New Facility to Help Enable Development of Cybersecurity Solutions
Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) today announced the grand opening of its Cyber Innovation Center (CIC) along the I-95 corridor in Columbia, Maryland.
The CIC includes a technical solutions lab and secured infrastructure intended to help SAIC develop and deliver cybersecurity solutions to customers. Other features of the center include a research and development, and training and conference spaces, as well as demonstration, prototyping and proposal solution support areas.
The center will also create more demand for talented cybersecurity professionals in the area. “The opening of the Cyber Innovation Center is good news for three reasons: jobs, jobs and more jobs for Maryland, jobs that keep the country safe and keep the economy strong,” said Senator Mikulski.
“The new CIC at SAIC is a true investment in the future of our workforce,” said Governor O’Malley. “Cybersecurity, computer systems design, and all the high tech, high potential sectors of our economy are all connected to our goals for creating, saving, and placing Marylanders in quality jobs. The innovation and exchange of ideas that happen here will help us identify threats such as identity theft, network viruses, loss of sensitive information and other malicious activity that are part of the ever-evolving world of cyber information and communications.”
