An image on a massive video screen inside the Georgia Cyber Center offers an invitation: “Join Us in Building the Future.” The phrase, displayed in one of two new downtown Augusta buildings designed to promote connectivity among government, military, industry and academia, could be a new slogan for Georgia’s second-oldest city.

The $100-million center, which opened its first building in summer 2018 and a second in January, is touted as the single largest investment by a state government in a cybersecurity facility.

Signs point to the future all around Augusta-Richmond County, especially with the U.S. Army Cyber Command Headquarters arriving in less than a year. Cyber Command will consolidate eight separate facilities in Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C., and move them in June 2020 to Fort Gordon, the Augusta region’s largest employer with a $2.5-billion annual economic impact.
