U.S. Army Cyber Command, which will complete a move of its headquarters to Fort Gordon later this year, is looking for talent locally and into the future, its commanding general said.

U.S. Army Cyber Command will complete a move of its headquarters into a gleaming and well-equipped building later this year but its biggest need will be filling it with the right personnel, the commanding general said.

“It truly is all about the people,” Lt. Gen, Stephen Fogarty said, and some of them will be from the area.

He spoke Wednesday at AFCEA Cyber Education, Research and Training Symposium, where he said the rapidly evolving field is demanding a greater effort at recruiting and putting the right people in place.

“It’s about a race for talent,” Fogarty said. “Things are moving so fast right now that the only thing that can keep up with it is the people.”
