After many months of planning and development, the Fort Gordon Cyber District in east Georgia is finally official.
The Alliance for Fort Gordon this week announced the launch of a partnership among military, business and civic leaders, The Augusta Chronicle reported.
Community leaders say it will position the Augusta area to best distribute economic benefits expected with the area’s growing boom in cybersecurity jobs and businesses.
The Army’s Cyber Command is expected to move to Fort Gordon by 2020 from Fort Belvoir, Virginia. Also, the Georgia Cyber Innovation and Training Center – designed to promote modernization in cybersecurity through public-private partnerships – is under construction in downtown Augusta.
The term “Fort Gordon Cyber District” was coined last year to broadly describe the concept of the new partnership, the newspaper reported.
