Gov. Deal’s announcement makes way for phase two

Gov. Nathan Deal announced an additional $35 million in funding toward the Hull McKnight Georgia Cyber Innovation and Training Center. The additional funds will go toward a second building that is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2018.

“The protection of Georgia’s citizens, businesses and institutions within the digital realm remains a paramount concern, and the demand for cybersecurity talent continues to exceed supply,” said Deal. “This facility will encourage world-class collaboration between industry leaders, startup companies, academic institutions and government in the field of cybersecurity, and provide space for private sector entities to leverage the center’s strategic resources.”
