Securing Connections in an Unsecured World: Georgia’s Europe Office Opens Transatlantic Dialogue on Cybersecurity
31 Mar 2021
As a part of the Digital Business Association out of Berlin, SIBB’s “Berlin Meets the USA” event series, the Georgia Department of Economic Development hosted a cybersecurity-focused webinar in January. The department and SIBB brought together experts and companies from both sides of the Atlantic to highlight the current cyber market, industry trends and hot topics, and best practices for expanding to the U.S.
With more than 115 cybersecurity companies generating over $4.7 billion in revenue every year (almost 25% of the global security market) the State of Georgia has emerged as a hotspot for cybersecurity operations in the U.S. In 2020, Fort Gordon in Augusta became home to the U.S. Army Cyber Command, the central post for all of the U.S. Army’s cybersecurity operations. Augusta is also the site of the Georgia Cyber Center, which is the largest single-investment in a state-owned cybersecurity facility in the nation to date. The $100 million Georgia Cyber Center is a unique public/private collaboration and the first of its kind.
