Gov. Nathan Deal announced Thursday that BurningCastle LLC, a professional information technology multi-service consulting company, will create 50 jobs and invest in the development of skilled IT staff in Augusta.
New jobs include positions in IT and cybersecurity instruction.
“As the No. 1 state for business for five consecutive years, Georgia is attracting not only the jobs of today, but those of tomorrow as well,” Deal said in his announcement. “Thanks to the rapid growth of the IT and digital development industries in our state, Georgia is now the nation’s cybersecurity capitol and a hub for technology companies of all kinds. We solidified this reputation earlier this year with the opening of the Georgia Cyber Center in Augusta and BurningCastle will be a valued component of the ‘cyber corridor’ that runs between Atlanta and our unrivaled facility. I welcome the addition of this important partner in our efforts to keep Georgia the safest and most innovative place to do business in the digital era.”
